Healthy weight: The answer depends on several factors-there are different body types which affect normal weight ranges. Also bone density and muscle mass are important. Goal should be healthy eating with 5 fruits and vegetables daily, no sugar drinks like soda, Gatorade, excessive juice, limit carbs, and regular daily exercise. Your child's doctor should be able to show you progress of weight, height and BMI %s.
