found the article i read it was a challange,the healthy family makeover challange spark team.here is a link to it .maybe on one of the team threads they might have the answer you are looking for.let me know as i might be interested as my oldest son because of his medication is over weight and the drīs want him to loose weight as it is not good for his heart problems or his asthma.he is eight years old. www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/challeng e_ detail.asp?challenge=5
Please let me know if you find anything. I looked at that Geopalz.com and it wasn't exactly what I was looking for. I would love to find something like Sparkpeople for him to use. He is not morbidly obese but he is heavy, so the exercising and counting calories in/burnt would not hurt him.

i think i read somewhere on spark that they have a spark family weather a team or a challange i am not sure but there was something in the artical about tracking for the whole family.over here unless your child is morbidly obess they recomand at that age that you consantrate not so much on loosing weight but maitaining the weight not putting on.as the child is still growing and then will grow into her weight so to speak.either way the inpotant thing is not to signal your daughter out.have you a wii fit.we have and my son has a mii on iz made to look like in.it does his weight ,bmi and records his fitness minutes and calories burned for them.he loves it.just a thought
I'm looking into this for you... it's probably information that would be beneficial to numerous parents on this team. So far, the only thing I've really found is a site called GeoPalz.com. They have a kid-friendly pedometer that you can purchase to help track your child's steps and upload the info directly to the website. It appears that there is no nutrition tracking though and you must purchase their pedometers in order to set up an account. The pedometers can be purchased through their site for 19.99.
I'm going to keep searching and see what else I can find.
