Let's see your overweight children!

Since schools are apparently telling us our kids are over or underweight and suggesting our larger children need to see drs let's post pictures of our "obese" or overweight children. By the way....my dr told me that labeling children as obese is BS. Sure some kids actually have weight issues but it extremely inaccurate to label anyone as obese before puberty.

My son is big. 94%.....always has been! He's got some chub sure but I definitely wouldn't consider him obese. He's a super healthy eater and extremely active. He is 8, 53in (4ft5) and 84lbs.

My sd is almost ten and weighs 84 lbs. She is super athletic though and does not look large in the least. My dd is 4 and weighs 33 lbs. She is healthy just looks thin.

I am not going to single anyone out, but some posted on here are clearly overweight.  My dd was overweight before the age of 12 as well.  Stressing good eating habits and excercise is the only reason she slimmed down when she hit the teen years.

I have trim kids so no pics here. That said, it is insane that most states have cut daily PE or long recesses.
