There are no absolute right weight and the only way to evaluate a child's weight is by comparing the current weight to previous weight measurements on the road to health chart (The card that your child got at birth that also documents all the immunisations). Your local clinic should be able to assist. Both you children are heavier than average, but a healthy balanced diet (no sweets/chips or fast food and lots of fruit and vegetables) together with normal physical activity should be encouraged. Remember we set the example by our own eating and exercise habits. Children should be encouraged to be physically active by e.g. walking and playing with us, playing with their friends etc., without following a formal training program. You may also ask our online dietician for advice.
