    • I really got mixed emotions when I read that.  I don’t understand why a 7 year old is reading what you‘re typing privately on your computer and why you didn’t just throw the letter out when you got it.  A simple explanation to a small child about which foods are “fattening” need only touch upon certain foods giving you more “energy” or calories and foods containing differing amounts of “nutrients” or good stuff for your body.  If your child is heavy for her height and age, it can easily be due to larger bones/more muscles.  You know what size your kid is wearing and if they‘re plus size or not. I think the letter is stirring up anxiety about what you perceive her future might be like if she were to get heavy.  Of course you care about how she will be treated, but as Lauren Bacall said “You can’t start worrying about what’s going to happen. You get spastic enough worrying about what’s happening now.”
