  • She's only ten. If she eats healthy and is active, then you're doing everything right and don't need to worry. However if you obsess about it you could create issues with her which could turn into later self-image and eating disorder issues.

  • I was like that at 10 too...until like...14 actually and then I turned into a perfect hourglass lol.... and honestly I didnt even eat healthy or really any activites besides school and walking with friends sometimes.... around 16 I did start doing that stuff and my shape got even better....

    but try not to worry so much and dont make it such a big deal or else your daughter will feel bad about the way she looks...even if you dont say anything, she can sense it...
