Just eat more healthy, but I wouldn't worry about her losing any weight or anything. She's only 10, and probably going to gain inches, and it'll balance out.

Overweight, yes but not severely so, It is still easily manageable if you start NOW and don't wait for it to get worse. Start simple, limit junk food, control portion sizes and get her outside to play.

U need to be there for her and help her. She's 10 and is still learning right from wrong. You have to tell her what to eat and if worst comes to worse FORCE her to work out. Go for a walk with her or make her join a dance class or such.

The healthy weight for her height is between 70 and 100 pounds.

yes she is overweight. when my daughter was 10, she was 4'11 and 95 pounds and still a little overweight.
