About.com has an article today that looks at whether your kids are overweight or underweight. My oldest son is in the just right category, but I am not sure about the toddler. He looks good to me, but I think I will check this out to make sure. There are so many kids who are facing obesity these days. There are many more who are overweight or headed in that direction.
Personally, I have a hard time getting my kids to eat. I have started making them take at least 3 bites. Otherwise, they will go the entire day without a decent meal. Other friends of mine say their kids don't stop eating and they have limit what they eat. I think it must be a mixture of heredity and learned behavior. What are your thoughts?
