How to secretly put my kid on a diet sort of?
My daughter is 8 years old and seems twice the size of most girls her age. She is about 70 pound...maybe even more. Not super tall. While the rest of her peers are twiggy, she is not. I am concerned for her weight and I am not sure why she is bigger. We don't eat bread in my house, soda, cookies... Dinner is salads or broccoli and meat,stirfry etc. Snacks are goldfish, crackers, pretzel, tons of fruit (she eats a lot of fruit) we eat Brown rice and sweet potatoes twice per week. She does eat school lunch. My daughter does prefer sweet snacks such as yogurt and fruit. Her typical day would be Greek yogurt, pkg goldfish, juice box, school lunch, fruit, broccoli and meat, juice box, fruit,crackers....my thoughts are maybe the fruit juice -she drinks about 2 boxes per day
