3. Answering Questions about the Weight Issue

If questions are raised by your child do not avoid them, but be engaged with them. The fact a question is raised is good but work out why the question was raised.

Discuss how children’s bodies differ and fluctuate during their rapid growing stages and that every child grows at a different rate.
