My 15 yo went vegetarian a couple months ago. i fugured her weight would chnage now that her diet has changed. Okay. Well the school called yesterday upset about as the school nurse put it she has lost 10 pounds since this time last year. Okay that would mean she's 5'3" and now weights 124 pounds. The nurse also stressed that she should be putting on weight not losing it. I tried to let the nurse know her diet has changed but she cut me off saying my daughter needs help for her as she put it anorexia. She's still within normal weight for height. Should I adress this with the school nurse?

find a bmi (body mass index) chart that supports the idea that 124 for a 5'3'' girl is well within the healthy range, take it to the principal, ask how the nurse will be reprimanded for harassing the parents of perfectly healthy children.
