In brief: Depends
Talk with your child's doctor. A healthy weight depends on her height.
If her weight is above average, talk about healthy choices. Don't focus on the number. Some kids don't need to lose weight, just stay stable until their height catches up. Diets are not recommended for children. Good healthy nutrition and regular exercise are the best way to help her feel good.
