39 Bumps

Bump if your child is at a healthy weight!

All this talk of America's obese children makes me wonder how many bumps this will get for healthy school aged children! Bump if your pediatrician thinks your child is at a healthy weight please!

  • i have 3 health weight kids and 2 are teenagers......so that means that yes sometimes they eat junk food.......as long as kids are active and not sitting around staring at the tv,computer or video game monitor all day eating junk food once in a while isnt going to kill them......any one rember see so many over weight kids before 1985? when video games became all the rage and PE classes where cut from schools? keep the kids active and they will be fine into adulthood........

  • Mine are all between the 50th & 75th percentile for weight, and 50th - 90th for height. So we're all happy.

  • I can't bump twice, but I have 2 healthy lo's. They eat junk food maybe once a month. DD doesn't even know what a french fry or candy is lol.

  • I've got 2 healthy kiddos! I've been teaching them the joys of healthy, natural eating since they were born. :-)

  • Mine is perfectly proportioned but not on the growth chart. BTW she thinks fish sticks are french fries and won't touch a cookie or cake.
