Approx 2200 Calories: A 10 year old boy should have approximately 2200 calories per day in a balanced diet. A good source of information about balanced diets for children (and adults) can be found at www.Choosemyplate.Com. You can enter the child's age, weight/height, and activity level and get an appropriate diet plan.
