  • If she was obese and the doctor said we should do it.

  • Only if it was medically needed.

  • If it was medically necessary, yes. If I felt that my child was on the heavy side, I wouldn't count calories with them but would watch their snacks and help them choose better food.

  • If it was needed for health reasons, beyond that, no. As long as they are healthy and generally eating healthy, I don't see any reason for stuff like that.

  • Only if MEDICALLY necessary, otherwise, I will love my child for who he is.

  • If my child was overweight I would most definitely retrain whatever eating habit was the cause. If that meant calorie counting, then yes- but I would be more concerned about proper nutrition than counting calories. If you are well fed (not over fed) your weight will stabilize.

  • If needed certainly. Mostly I would monitor portion and nutrition value.

    Answer by Liansmommie at 11:59 PM on Nov. 19, 2010

  • I'm not a calorie counter, I feed my kids mostly healthy food and I watch their portion sizes.
