  • No no no no no no

    Feed her healthy, non processed foods and get her outside to play. Speak to your pediatrician

    No matter what you say, no reasonable mom is going to encourage you to give your child any diet aid.
    Speak to the child's doctor regarding your concerns and get a professional opinion.

  • NO. Cook healthier meals for her.
    Her knee hasn't been injured forever, so how did she get that way?
    She can still do work out in a pool, and do upper body exercises.

  • An injured knee has nothing to do with what you feed her. You really need to get her to the pediatrician to determine what she can do for exercise and, more importantly, to treat her knee

  • Absolutely not! Shit, I wouldn't recommend that stuff for adults, much less children. Teach her portion control and healthy eating. Stop buying any processed foods, sodas, and any sort of crappy mindless snacks like chips. Healthy living is learned. So are bad habits. Don't set her up for a lifetime of fad diets.

  • NO!!! Exercise (active play) and healthy food and portions should be first course of action. Talk to her pediatrician and a nutritionist if you need additional guidance. An appetite suppressant is not meant for children.
