Eat healthier foods and exercise. A 10-year-old is a child, so they should be out playing anyway or engaging in sports. Usually, if they are playing something other than a video game or computer, they are getting some type of physical exercise.

eating

  • don't eat too much
  • you still have to eat so don't starve yourself
  • eat healthier food
  • no more junk food
  • strictly limit (apart from the occasional treat) refined (processed) carbohydrates, they are a major cause of unwanted weight gain and obesity in children and adults. You can see a list of these foods further down this page, listed under Related Questions.
  • fruits and vegetables are good
  • drink lots of water
  • no more sugary foods
  • no more salty foods
  • fruits and vegetables aren't the only healthy foods
  • instead of eating do something else you like to do
  • make sure you eat enough protein and eat foods that help your body.

being active

  • join a sport
  • if you don't like sports then you can walk jog or run sometime in the week
  • don't lay around every day, make sure that you do something active
  • if you are a sport that will help you lose weight
  • every night do one push up and one sit up, the next week do 2 push ups and 2 sit ups, soon you will not be a able to do so many, then stay at that week till you get stronger, stop at 20
  • try to set a goals that way you have another thing to look forward to when you achieve them
  • remember to appreciate your body not hate it
  • if you have a trampoline jump!
  • get off the computer and do some cardio exercise to get your blood pumping.
  • if you like snacking, then think that if you are walking you can take stops and eat some vegetables. Also bring water.
  • set certain goals for brisk walking and jogging.
