Health Care Guidance & Advice

Weight guidelines for kids

Overweight and obesity in children has become a serious health concern. Overweight children are more likely to have high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and type two diabetes. They also have to deal with social discrimination from their peers, which can lead to poor self-esteem and depression. What’s more, overweight kids have a 70% chance of becoming overweight or obese adults (80% chance if one or more parent is overweight or obese). Schedule a visit with your child's pediatrician or family physician, who can tell you if your child’s weight is in a healthy range. If your child is overweight, be supportive. Make sure your child knows that you love and accept him or her at any weight. Encourage healthy eating habits. Make an effort to keep a variety of healthful foods—fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy products, whole grains, and lean meats—on hand. Encourage daily physical activity. Limit the time your child is allowed to watch TV, play video games, and surf the internet. Be a positive role model. Your physician or dietitian can offer information help you manage your child’s weight. Seek help if you need it.
