my 11 year old has gained 15 pounds in a year and its mostly in her tummy altherrough sje has celulite on her thighs. I just had a new baby in may for which i spent 24 weeks on bedrest. Consequently my whole family got a bit sedentary plus my hubby did most of the cooking or take out which means a lot of carbs y hubby loves to serve double carbs! fries andac and cheese where his specialty). I am 4 weeks post op from a cesarean but am gradually cooking again (sorry kiddos...back to one carb and veggies or salad). my question is what is normal calorie intake for mildly active 11 year old girl with pre puberty signs. Fyi...her friends habe begun to make fun of her and she is now aware of it. before she didnt care and we had to explain portion sizes etc to her. Also we live in sn area not codusive to bike riding and cant aford too many extra activities. she only does gymnastics 1 x a week. Any help would be appreciated thx!!
