Hello fellow moms. I have 6 yr old twin girls. They love to eat many different types of food which is a good thing however I notice one of my girls is getting a belly on her. The pediatrician did not really tell me she is overweight as they are tall girls but I feel I should do something. Your advice is very much appreciated.

I found that my children filled out a bit just before a big growth spurt. It's normal so they have enough stores to grow quickly.

She is FAR too young for you to be obsessing over her body image. She will gain, lose and gain as she grows, which is totally normal.
Make sure that you are feeding healthy meals and snacks, and she'll be fine.

Hi, Michelle. Thank you for your reply. I am trying so hard to feed them healthy food and only one glass of juice a day and no soda. I will never give them that.

Thank you once again.

As long as she is eating healthy and is active you shouldn't put her on a diet, she's far too young.
