My daughter will be 7 in December. She weighs 69lbs which is in the 90th percentile for her weight. And is 3ft 4in. Which puts her at 30th % for height.
She is chunky and always has been since birth. I enforce healthy eating, no soda, no junk food, ect ect. She is in sports, she has done volleyball soccer swim lessons and cheer leading. Soccer season is getting ready to start again, and she is in tumbling as well. What am I doning wrong?? What else can I do?

What you think is healty food may not be healthy and she may be eating too big of portions and too many calories a day. She should drink only water; no milk, juice, or artificial sweeteners. For school lunch if she can't get water send a bottle of water with her. You may want to do something to try and get the school to have water available for the kids to drink since all kids should be drinking water.
You can keep a food diary for a few days to get a true picture. You can find things online to help analyze her diet. If you go to google and type in superfoods you can find lists of foods that are good for her to eat. She doesn't need to drink milk. Drinking milk is linked to obesity. There is cheese that is lower fat. Kids like foods with milk and can get their 2 servings a day from milk products and foods.
