They use to have a SparkTeen awhile back but it looks like that is gone. My daughter is 10 and it seems she was getting a little pudge-not much but I was concerned so I started making super yummy healthy snacks and she loves them! It curbs her appetite for meals and shes getting better nutrition.
Happy to say after a few months she looks slim! I haven't said anything to her and I haven't weighed her. I just decided I would take away the after school brownie and switch it to something that involves fruits or veggies and now she doesn't have over sized portions at dinner--all on her own:)
It's tough with children, you don't want to give them self esteem problems. I guess I can't really give advice except your nephew maybe should she a pediatrician?
Good luck!

My sister has recently joined sparkpeople and has a very over weight child as well. He is 11 years old. Does anyone know if there is a way to track his food, activity, and things like that. We are concerned for his health and since this is such a great sight for me we were hoping spark had a family tracker or something. If it does could you explain how to set it up. I would appreciate it thank you.
