My son is on the thin side unlike me who surely needs to lose some unwanted pounds especially on the tummy area.
"My classmate said I'm so thin. Am I too thin, Mama?"
He has long limbs and one of the tallest in his class. He does look thin but I don't think he's malnourished. I prepare, and make sure he eats healthy food so I'm not worried that he's thin. He does eat the not-too-healthy ones sometimes like bacon. Although, come to think of it, I buy lean bacon instead of those loaded with fat.
I have to be diligent in reminding him that he doesn't have to be fat, like the classmate who told him he's too thin, because fat isn't healthy. I have to explain as well that eating the right kinds of food is what's important.
