Izzy is 4 foot 3 inches and weighs 102 pounds. Her doctor infromed us the other day that she is at risk of becoming overweight. I had not noticed this but last night I went into her room and saw her asleep with her tummy slightly hanging over her trousers. How can I make sure she dosen't get to big, before its not to late?

You might want to type her info in a kids bmi calculator like the one on this site as according to that Izzy is obese not at risk of becoming overweight. She should weigh 74 pounds at the most. To help her slim down make sure she gets a hour exercise a day,5 fruit/veg and 8 glasses of water and cut out junk food. Also make sure she gets enough sleep as kids who don't are often bigger. Luckily she isn't to obese yet so follow the advice and she will soon slim down and lose the tummy.
