In order to correctly determine the ideal weight of a 10 year old, one needs to calculate his or her body mass. There may be healthy variations of weight depending on a series of factors: Height (the most important variable), gender, genetic inheritance, and even race. However, apart from these variations, a healthy 10 year old, be it boy or girl, should ideally weigh no less than 70 lbs and no more than 90 lbs.
The best way to calculate the perfect weight is to use the body mass index (BMI). For this age, the gender is not quite relevant, because the levels of physical development in boys and girls are pretty much similar around the age of 10. To calculate your child’s BMI you need his or her weight and height. The results are compared to statistical data, giving you a final percentile. A BMI percentile of 45 per cent means that your child weights more than 45 per cent of the kids of his age.
Having in mind that the values considered normal (healthy children) range between five and 85 per cent, with those below five per cent being underweight, and those above 85 per cent overweight or obese, we could easily conclude that the normal standards are quite permissive. Yet, it’s obvious that the closer to 50 per cent, the better. This is the place where genes may prove important, so consider corroborating such data with further information about the race and the family inheritance of your little one.
Children develop in different ways and each one’s metabolism has its own pace. This is the main reason why we should understand that the ideal weight is just a reference point to guide us with nutrition and physical exercises. As long as your child has a good perception on his or her body and the BMI percentile is between the abovementioned limits, you’re heading the right direction.
A lot of people in my 5th grade class think they are fat and they only weigh like 65. I think you should weigh around 70 - 100 pounds. But if your around 105 your not overweight or fat...
I'm in 5th grade and I'm 4'9 maybe even 5'0. Last time I was measured I was in 3rd grade. I have a medium body frame as well does my mother and father. That counts too... Anyway, I weigh about 103 pounds. And thats still underweight. (I went to the doctor) My doctor said my weight should be 112 or more considering the jacket, belt, etc. That I wore during the weight exam. But yes depending on height, frame, and extras (jacket, belt, etc.) will count. Hope this helps, Bella :)
Well, I'm 10 too when I first turned 10 I was about 90 pounds now I am 100. But don't worry about your weight you don't need to until your an adult unless you get sick because of it and don't worry about boys either because if a boy really likes you he wont like you because of your weight,height,face,or anything he'll like you for your attitude and just you don't be one of those girls and don't try to because then those girls get guys just because they look good not because they love them.
I'm ten, and I can't help but wonder about my weight. I am pretty fit, and play volleyball, but still bigger than my friends. I am somewhere around 90 pounds, and it is kinda weird, but be true, and be you! An average should be 70 to 90. I know how you feel, some people look so skinny, they are just...well...er...anorexic. Don't discourage yourself, and just continue. Portion control is important, and don't eat to much, but don't stop eating or anything.
I am 10 years old and I weigh 120lbs and I am about 5 ft 10 inches so is that obese because I think I am fat. Can someone please answer my question,
I'm 10 and I weigh 110 and I'm 5'2.My friends and family think I'm skinny but I think I'm kinda fat.Also Never think that Mr. Right will come in a wink because he might have bad feelings for you at first but then after a while he might have a change of heart.I had done that too, if had took me 4 years to realize that he loved me for who I was. And I love him to DEATH. Also if no boys want to date you they either love you on the inside but don't want to show it or they are just acting childish and naive.
Hope this Helps some!!!
Ps. A boy will love you because of your respect and attitude not of your body type(Hopefully)!!!!
I'm ten too and I have thigh fat, I weigh 80-82 pounds! I think a average 10 year old should weigh 65-95 pounds.

The ideal weight of a person depends on his or her individual height. However, the average weight for a 10 year old should be somewhere between 75 - 90 lbs.
