Are you sure about the web site - when I go there it is a children's insurance page?

Thanks for the feedback. Our calorie and nutrient recommendations aren't designed to meet growing children's needs. Your best bet is to talk with his pediatrician about the situation and see if they can provide some advice. You might also want to check out www.healthykids.org which has a lot of free resources.

Hope that helps,

Coach Jen

My son is 10 and over weight. A large part of his problem is nutrition and portion control. I tried to set him up on the site so I could show him how much sugar and calories are in some of the foods he over indulges in and how it adds up - so I can try to teach him at an earlier age to make better choices. I understand that kids shouldn't "diet", but can't we have the tools to teach them proper choices. How many adults don't realize the poor choices we make until we see them in black and white.

I would like to at least see a way to add family members nutrition and fitness under our log in if I can't set up an account for him.
