Our expert says:
The average weight for a 9-year-old girl is about 28 kg and the average height is about 127 cm, so your lassie certainly seems to weigh much more and is much taller than the average girl of her age. It may be a good idea to have her assessed by a medical doctor just to see if her growth is not excessive. The doctor will also advise you if she needs to lose weight or not. If this should be the case, then it is important to consult a clinical dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area), because the dietitian will have to work out a diet for the lassie that helps her to lose weight, but still provides all the nutrients like calcium that she needs for healthy, normal growth.
