Hi my name is michelle and my daughter is 5 1/2 and weighs 63 pounds, which normal range is 37-47 pounds. She is 3ft8in in height. I have to be honest I'm sure I have not helped her keep a healthy diet by letting her eat what she wants..I try to give a balanced meal at meal times, but her main problem is drinks and snacks she is constantly wanting a snack always hungry and always wants desert...she is not a couch potato..she plays inside/outside and I enrolled her in soccer to get her more active..i feel bad by telling her no I guess that is my problem...what should I do or start with to get her back on track to healthy eating. Thank you!Michelle

Reply from Christina, Child's Age 16 - 01/31/05 - IP#: 24.233.65.xxx I totally agree with you Claire. She is young enough were you are the boss. If you eat healthy, she will want to eat healthy too. Dont buy unhealthy snacks, and just dont buy soda and things like that. Have her drink milk, or a fruit juice that doesent have artificial flavoring!
Reply from claire, Child's Age 17 - 01/30/05 - IP#: 67.190.0.xxx she's young enough that you still have an impact on what she eats and does. even though she may not like it, don't let her overeat. keep only healthy snacks around the house, and don't give her soda. also, teach her by example: she will want to eat healthy if you are.
