You can't force your Child to exersize or do anything they don't want to. You can limit time spent on the computer or watching TV. Try and find some cool music your kids like and ask them to do an aerobic workout with the music on. Try and eat healthy foods most of the time and don't eat fast food if you can avoid it. also try to talk to your child and make them aware that there are health risks associated with being over weight. Hope this helps!

Depending on her height, at 160 lbs. it may not be the end of the world. A healthy weight, depending on her height, should be no more than 140. That's only 20 lbs. According to the BMI information on this web page a weight range for a 12-year-old is somewhere between 87 and 138. YMMV of course.

You didn't mention how tall she was so I went to the calculator and entered her at 5'2..according to the BMI calculator she should weigh between 83 and 122 poiunds. How tall is she? When I was 12 I was already 5'8.
