DS is 8. He is right on track with height and is a size 1 shoe. Hes VERY active but is underweight. However i think its just because hes soooooo active!Answer Question
My kids are very thin but when I bring this up to their doctor, they say he kids are right where they are supposed to be. Because the 'norm' of society today leans towards being heavier, when we see a child who is at their deal weight, they tend to look underweight.

Well my daughter has always been in the 50% percentile for weight and 95% for height lol. So she is tall and skinny, but she is only 20 months old so I know why she is non stop. But I am not too concerned she has been underweight once but quickly regained the little weight she had lost.

no I'm not concerned and I have VERY thin kids(my 8yr old is in the 5th percentile and my 18mo isn't on the charts). As long as they stick to a growth curve consitantly, keep gaining then they are fine. I try to up their healthy fats as much as I can, like avocados. A Here is a link u may find helpful if u want to put weight on them and maybe to consider any underlaying causes like a gluten intolerence http://www.healthy-cooking.info/gain.htm
