My three boys are very active and I really try and watch what they eat. Thankfully they like fruits and most veggies, so that is a good thing! I have a neice who just turned 8 and she weighs probably 65-70 pounds and is a bit chubby for her age. She was the baby of the the family until her baby brother came along 3 years ago. then she got pushed to the back burner. It breaks my heart to see what she goes through. My sil is always taking them out to eat and has all sort of junk in the house. At dinners and picnics, sil always makes TONS of desserts. At her youngest's birthday party on memorial day, the only healthy thing there was a veggie tray (and the kabobs that bil made weren't too bad). No fruits, just mac and potato salad, broccoli salad, hot dogs, chips, pop, etc.
We are hosting a picnic for 4th of July and I vow to have healthy options!
