I came across a child BMI calculator at CDC.gov so I decided to check DD's height/weight/age/sex with it and it turns out that according to her BMI, she's overweight. Even looking at her through skeptical eyes, she doesn't look overweight to me. No, she's not skinny, but she's not fat either.........she's what I would consider "normal."
She has plenty of activity, but she doesn't eat the best being that she is like the pickiest eater of all time and will only eat a handful of foods........most not what would necessarily be considered "overly healthy"
Her pediatrician has never said a word to me. Should I be worrying if this isn't something he seems concerned about.........at least at this point?
