Just tell her to STOP. She is NOT his mother.

Just tell her to butt out. Doctors say he is fine. My son is 8 and weighs 54 lbs. He is skinny!!! I have to tighten his slim jeans to make them stay up. He eats healthly and eats a lot. Sorry to say, makes me sick. He will eat like 5 helpings and not gain a pound. Kids are al different.

Sigh... I understand where you are coming from. My dd2 is almost three and weighs 22lbs. I really hate it when people assume that she needs to eat a ton of junk to gain weight. Even if she ate nothing but McDonald's, she wouldn't gain. She would just be unhealthy. All my kids are skinny. It is genetics. Just tell her you understand her concern, but you got this handled.
