There are no hard and fast rules, but according to The American Heart Association, a 14 -18 year old girl needs about 1800, boys need closer to 2000. So you should adjust down accordingly for your 10 year old boy or girl. Consider 1500 - 1600 a day depending on sex, body size/height and level of daily physical activity. TV watchers need a lot less fuel than a kid who runs and plays all day long. Also the quality of those calories makes a huge difference. One candy bar will add up to 300 calories, the equal of consuming 7 small apples. Ask your pediatrician or nutritionist for a more accurate recommendations.

He/she is still young and should at least get 2000 calories a day. As they get older, the calories will lower. By the time he/she is 12 or 13 years old, they should only get a take in of only 1200 to 1500 calories.
