My son is only nine and weighs about 109 pounds. He is about 4 foot 2 inches tall. I am worried. Should I put him on a diet?

Let him eat what the rest of the family eats, only don't let him "pig out." For snacks limit them to fresh fruit and veggies. Also make sure he does plenty of active play, instead of watching TV, playing video games, etc.


I have a grandson that was overweight in elementary school, but when he reached middle school age, he went on a growth spurt and at that time his weight matched his height. He is a sophomore now and is 6'3" and isn't at all overweight, with a 34-36 inch waist.
