Worried About Weight?

If your child is overweight and you want to decrease his or her total calorie intake, think about not only what gets eaten at mealtime, but also what gets eaten in between.

Before you put your child on a reduced-calorie diet, talk to your pediatrician about weight trends and any chronic health conditions your child may have. If the doctor recommends a reduced-calorie diet, a pediatric dietitian can guide you in planning meals and snacks that will help your child reach a healthy weight.
