My daughter is 9 and weighs 100 lbs and is 54 inches tall. My husband (her father) and I are of both of avg height and weight. She only drinks water and ff milk in the am. No junk food in the house. Very little eating out. We have gone to 2 doctors and had some bloodwork which showed no issues except for elevated chol. (which is in our genes). She is gaining mostly in her stomach. We are trying to help her but have not seen any progress. We don't want her to lose weight but just keep her weight stable. Does anyone else have any feedback or have experienced the same thing????

Fruit sugars are not like processed sugars, but should be limited to 2 servings per day. Really, you should speak to a dietary expert. High cholesterol at such a young age is kinda shocking.

Fresh fruits and vegetables, protein from beans, and some whole grains....limited. Healthy lean protein. And exercise. Get her out a lot, riding bikes, walking, swimming....whatever you can.

Limit her carbs (that means no milk or less milk). Sugar grows fat cells. Things like bread, pasta, even fruits and yogurts (if you eat too much) will cause weight gain.
