Q.

oorgewig 7 jarige - is ' n dieetkundige ' n opsie

My seun van 7 is oorgewig, maar is ook baie groot gebou vir sy ouderdom. Hy weeg tans 42kg. Is ' n dieetkundig ' n opsie, of is daar net goedjies wat ons kan sny. Nadat hy babamasels gehad het op 2, weier hy om groente te eet. Eet pampoenkoekies, spinasiemuffins en aartappels, maar dis omtrent dit. Af en toe ' n appel, litchi, piesang. Help asb.

Die gemiddelde gewig vir 'n seun van 7 jaar is 23kg. Jou seun se gewig is beslis ver bo hierdie syfer. Ek stem saam dat dit nodig is om 'n dieetkundige te raadpleeg.

how much junk food / take aways does he have - i know thats a huge reason he could be overweight

I went to a dietician last week and i know she does consult with kids.

So i would say - yes i think its an option
