    15.3kg

    My 4 yr old is 16 kgs and 5 yr old is 17 kgs. Both are really tall which makes them look skinny.

    My 6.5yo is a shocking eater! In that he barely eats dinner meals, at all, because, well, he just doesn't eat it. It's incredibly frustrating, so I hear you on that!

    This was the reason that I checked out his height/weight on a children's BMI calculator to give me a rough idea. He's fine percentile wise, though his trajectory is off (he's 90th for height, 25th for weight), but enter his height/weight into the calculator and he was completely within the normal healthy range.

    I do often wonder if we're just not used to seeing the scope of healthy average these days? I mean, think of how many children (and adults!) are overweight these days, perhaps we have become so accustomed to seeing this, that when we see a slim child (or adult!), we start to wonder if they are *too* slim, y'know? It's something I ponder, anyway

    So true! And we worry. Use to think DS1 was thin then he started Soccor at 4.5yrs and was the biggest in his team and majority were 6 yrs old and parents asked if DS was turning 7 soon, relised I was being silly
