My daughter is 11 years old. 5'8" and 70 kg. She is very much taller and bigger than her classmates. She doesn't look overweight too. She is really active and does sports regularly. She is even in her school cricket, football and basketball team. She even passes fitness tests in real comfort too. Should I call her overweight based on this result.

My son turned 7 three months ago. He is 4'7 height and 104.4 weight. He is much taller than every one of the children in his 1st grade class. He doesn't look overweight.... My question is should I put him on a strict diet b/c his pediatrician said his weight should be under 75 pds. However, The Dr. didn't take into consideration his height or Genetics. I'm 5'10 [168.00] and his father is 6'5 (283). My son is very active in sports and he eats health. He goes to basketball camp 4 times per week and he also plays football once a week. I don't understand why his pediatrician would call him (extremely) overweight.
