My son is somewhere between 4'8 and 4'10. He is very active and prefers water, juice, or fat free milk. He eats very little but he weighs 121lbs. I'm afraid that something is wrong or that he is overweight. He gets picked on for his weight at school because he is taller and is heavier than most kids in his class. He wears 16 husky pants and 16-18 size shirts. Any suggestions on what could be wrong?

He sounds fine, just big for his age

I would suggest you take your son for a check up with your pediatrician. Some boys are just "big for their age"...since your son eats healthy, that may be the case. Other kids can be very cruel to any kid who is "different". Can you involve your son in activities where his size is an advantage and which will be good for his self-esteem?
