Kids Healthy Weight

Minnie Said:

What is a normal healthy weight for a kid?

We Answered:

the healthy weight for your height and age is from 100 pounds to 130 pounds but to be slim is from 100 pounds to 110 pounds.
it's true that when you're exercising you gain some muscles so you gain and pounds.but these pounds are healthy.they are not fat so i think that you should keep exercising and stop worrying about the extra just have to eat healthy and exercising and stop worrying for a number.

Diana Said:

For overweight kids what is the healthy food to loose weight without disturbing their charmness.?

We Answered:

When you lose fat, you don't get to choose where that fat comes off. An 11-12 year old kid should only diet under the care of a doctor. But all kids, regardless of age, should eat a balanced diet.

Joshua Said:

weight charts no longer for healthy kids?

We Answered:

I have very thin children and thin genes in my family but both of my kids are just under the 50th percentile on the charts and I don't get hassled about their weight. Some people have small kids, tell your doctor to back off, or go see a different doctor.

Jenny Said:

my ten year old is at a healthy weight but why does she run slower then other kids?

We Answered:

There are two types of muscles; Slow twitch fiber and fast twitch fiber.

Fast twitch fiber:
People with a higher ratio of this will be more likely to excel in short distance running/sprinting, discus/shotput/javelin and high jump.

Slow twitch fiber:
People with a higher ratio of this will be more likely to do well in team sports which require alot of running such as football; also will excel at long distance/marathon running and long jump.

Your daughter may have slow twitch fiber ratio's, which is not a bad thing just cause it's called slow lol. I have slow twitch fibers too - its based on genes and you can't change it significantly.

I wouldn't worry about her weight as she's still young and has puberty to go, you don't want to stunt her growth in any area, or her brain growth lol. I'd encourage her to take up sports such as football, marathons, basketball, ballet, gymn....

It may also be a motivation thing ; mind over body! Some kid's are capable of running fast but they don't run at full capacity cause of their brains holding them back. No problem really, it gets better as they mature

Tracey Said:

do you know another way for kids to lose weight besides eating healthy? something that's fun?

We Answered:

Well, it's not really a sport but... there's dancing! It's cardio, when you think about it ;D. You move and you get to burn a lot of calories. :] And it's fun, so yah. <3

Healthy weight loss tips for kids.?

We Answered:

Losing weight can be tough for a lot of people. While there are a lot of ways to boost your metabolism and burn through calories, did you know that there are foods out there that aid your body in the process? While none of these can be considered a cure-all for fat loss, each has special properties that rev up your metabolism. They can all be easily found at your local supermarket and incorporated into your diet.

Foods that Boost your Metabolism, Boost your Metabolism and loose weight faster!

While none of these foods are sufficient to base your entire diet on, every little bit helps. It’s easy to put ice in your water, add some chiles to your pasta sauce, and make a big salad or stir fry. Just remember, the only way to really lose fat and look good is to exercise and eat right. These are just some ways to give your metabolism the little boost it needs to burn a few more calories!

Rolled Oats
Rolled oats can be made with whey protein and flaxmeal in the morning to spike your metabolism with high quality carbohydrates, protein and good fats. The best time to eat rolled oats is in the morning when your body needs carbohydrates for your brain and body to effeciently function throughout the rest of the day.

Whey Protein
Whey protein is perhaps the best thing for your metabolism since sliced rye bread (yes, we know what the saying is). It is in powder format and comes from cows milk. Whey protein is a complete high quality protein which is great for increasing your metabolism because everytime you ingest protein your body feels full longer and revs your metabolism.

Almonds are loaded with good fats, fiber and incomplete protein. You can see the complete nutrient profile here. Since almonds have such great essential fatty acids they help your body raise it's metabolism just by ingesting them. Obviously ANY FAT has a high calorie content so be sure to have a few nuts every day. You can mix these up with pine, cashews and walnuts as they also contain a very healthy amount of good fats and antioxidants.

Natural Yogurt
Natural yogurt contains many pro-biotic cultures that are necessary for a healthy digestive tract. Yogurt also contains a lot of good fats and some protein. Yogurt can be eaten as a mid-morning snack with a whole apple.

Green Tea
Green Tea is perhaps one of the best morning metabolism boosters you can drink. Not only does it help with cancer risk, weight loss, metabolism it also contains caffeine which helps you focus during the morning. Green tea is found in many fat burning products

Beans are loaded with fiber and incomplete protein. Fiber helps keep you feeling full longer which helps prevent any binges and lapses in your meal plan.


Spinach is loaded with antioxidants which help repair damaged muscles and prevent free radicals from doing their damaging effects to your health. Spinach is known for it's iron, vitamin C, potassium and magnesium. wouldn't suggest ingesting this everyday but every few days would be acceptable.

Eggs are one of the highest quality protein sources available. Eggs should be part of everyones diet and is perhaps the best food at speeding up the metabolism.

Turkey is one of those lean meats that you should have once or twice a week to switch up your sources of protein. It is a great source of complete protein which helps rev your BMR (basal metabolic rate)

Chicken Breast
Chicken breast should be a staple in anyones diet. It's lean, easy to make and you can find it cheap at the local supermarket. I prefer the bonless, skinless kind because it takes extra time to skin/debone it.

Peanut Butter
Peanut Butter is one of those hidden health foods. People give it a bad rap due to it's high caloric content but it contains great essential fatty acids, lots of fibre and some incomplete protein. Instead of putting it on toast, try it on celery as a snack.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Canola Oil
Extra virgin olive oil and canola oil should be used at ALL TIMES when cooking. Since extra virgin olive oil has a lower flash point (it burns at a lower temperature than most oils) it is sometimes pretty messy to use. These oils contain lots of omega 3's which keep your heart and brain healthy.

Whole grains
Whole grains provide energy that you need throughout the day. Most of the advertised whole grains aren't actually made with Whole Wheat (and with the germ). Make sure that the product that you buy is not enriched either. The more that you increase your insulin levels the better chance you're slowing down that metabolism.

Most people love berries and they're not such a hidden secret anymore. They are jam packed FULL of antioxidants and is probably one of the most important health foods to eat to maintain a healthy lifestyle and keep your metabolism going strong. Frozen Raw Raspberries are usually the easiest to purchase from the frozen section of your local supermarket.

Cayenne Pepper
In the past five years cayenne pepper has been used in fat burners. Why you ask? Well, cayenne has thermagenic (heats up your body) properties. When your body has to cool itself down it requires calories to do so. Thus, creating a fire for your metabolism.

Coffee is one of those foods that have been loved and hated by many nutrionists and dieticieans. The most recent research about caffeine and coffee suggest many positive benefits which include: Speeding up your metabolism, heart health, increased concentration and many more.

A recent study by germany researchers suggest that 90 minutes after drinking cold water (H20) will boost your metabolism by 24% over their average metabolism rate. Make sure to drink your water cold. Not only does water keep your body lean it also helps with keeping the flow of nutrients and helps get rid of free radicals. Make sure you're keeping the water cooler near by.

Lean red meat has also been through a love and hate relationship with many health professionals; but recent research suggests that lean red meat should be ingested once per week. Red meat contains creatine monohydrate which helps your body use more creatine phosphate (ATP) to help you build muscle. Obviously with the more muscle mass the greater your metabolism.

I hoped this helped. Good Luck ?

In order to keep a healthy weight you must balance your food and always be a regular doer of exercise. I think the question shared here is the usual question that every mom asked to their pediatrician. Parents are always tensioned about the weight of their children during proper interval of time. The article shared lots of healthy foods and keep updating more like that.

the original source said:

Most of the parents want their babies to look chubby. Not because babies look cute that way. But they think that only chubby babies are healthy. But in reality, they are having over weight and they have more chance of getting coronary diseases.
