    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Have you spoken to her doctor about this? I would probably start there. He/she may be able to recommend a nutritionist if it's necessary.

    What kind of food is around the house? What are some things your daughter loves to eat? Lots of times you can "tweak" recipes to make them healthier.

    Does your daughter play any sports? Does she like to play outside? What are some of her favorite activities? Could you do those activities with her to help encourage her to be active?

    All kids need a healthy diet and lots of physical activity- no matter their size. So that seems to be where you will want to start.
