My 5 year old weighs..Edit with height!

Posted by   + Show Post
35 pounds!!
She is SOOO tiny! Picky eater, hates veggies and will only eat chicken!

What can I do to put some nutrition into her life? any yummy recipes?


She is 42 inches tall.
Her doctor isn't concerned.
I'm not concerned just wanting recipes to make sure she is getting nutritious food!!
My 4 yr old son weighs 55 pounds and 8 yr old daughter weighs 60 pounds.

:) Ah so she is a shorty.  Weight sounds good to me.  

Quoting dtristan78:

42 inches.
I've been away from my computer and didn't get to update everything.


Quoting erinsmom1964:

I don't know what that means as you haven't given a height.  I mean if your kid is 44 inches thats not bad.  If your kids is 50 inches SERIOUS problem.  If your kid is 36 inches probably chubby.  AGE has absolutely nothing to do will weight height does.

My DD LOVES veges raw.  I even sometimes have to say no you can have them after you eat something else because she will fill up on them all day and she is skinny at 32 pounds for 44 inches of height at 3 1/2

35 lbs and 42" is on the low normal side for bmi but still perfectly healthy.

I wide do smoothies or pediasure if you are concerned. But if doc isn't I wouldn't worry too much.
