She is nine years old and everyone is jumping on her tolose weight. She is overweight but she hasn't even hit puberty yet. How can Ihelp without cutting everything out of her diet?Answer Question
Not your problem unless asked? It's too bad but that is the stepmom's place with most issues. Make sure there are healthy things for her to eat in your house and no bad foods available when she is there.

Plan family days that are active. Take the whole family paint balling or get a wii and do the sports thing. I played the tennis game with some patients once and wow it will make you work.Food substitutions are great too. Replace your breads and pastas with whole grain. Maybe start having fruit salads for breakfast. Fruits are great in the morning and I have yet to meet a kid that did not like some fruits as much as candy. If you do it in ways like this instead of saying you have to lose weight your getting to big. I am hoping they are not calling her fat I am sure she gets enough of that crap at school. Than it should lead to mentally healthy weight lose instead of possible self image issues and possible eating dis orders.
