How Much Should A 10 Year Old Boy Weight?

The short answer is that a 10 year old boy would normally weigh in the region of 70 to 90 pounds.  The longer answer is that the ideal weight range for any person depends on their height, their age, their sex and is given by the Body Mass Index or BMI.

There is no perfect weight for anyone.  However, medicine does recognize a weight range that is considered to be most healthy for a given height and age expressed as BMI.

The National Institutes of Health says that BMI is a useful measure of overweight and obesity.  BMI is, in fact, an estimate of body fat and hence is a good indication of your risk for diseases that can occur with more body fat. The higher your BMI, the higher your risk for certain diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, gallstones, breathing problems, and certain cancers, says the NHI.

Broadly speaking, if someone has a BMI of lower than 18.5, he or she would be considered underweight. A MBI of 18.5 to 25 is considered normal, while a BMI of 25 to 20 is said to be overweight.  The clinical definition of obesity is having a BMI above 30.

The National Health Institutes has published a do it yourself BMI monitor on its web site here www.nhlbisupport.com/bmi/bmi-m.htm so that you can measure your own BMI.
When considering what is a healthy weight, there is one other factor that may have to be taken into account and that is the measurement around your waist.  This is a good indication, says the NHI, of possible health risks that can come with overweight and obsesity.

If most of your fat is around your waist rather than at your hips, you’re at a higher risk for heart disease and type 2 diabetes. This risk goes up with a waist size that is greater than 35 inches for women or greater than 40 inches for men. To correctly measure your waist, stand and place a tape measure around your middle, just above your hipbones. Measure your waist just after you breathe out.

Well I'm 11 yrs old and I weigh 98 lb while being 5 feet tall and I run a lot with friends I used to be 103 lb but during spring break I was outside each day for like 8 hrs and spring break was 11 days so I think the average weight for a boy thats 10 yrs old depends on how tall he is if the boy is 5 feet like me it is good if he is at least 90-105 lb.

On an average, a ten year old should weigh any where between 100 to 105 pounds. When converted into kilograms it comes up to nearly 45 to 48 kilograms. On the other hand every ten year old is not of the same height.
Normally ten year old boys are taller in height as compared to ten year old girls. Boys at the age of ten are anywhere between four feet nine inches to five feet one inch in height, on the other hand ten year old girls are anywhere between four feet five inches to four feet nine inches in height.
Well it would be fair to state that an average ten year old weighs roughly 45 kilograms and is five feet tall. Though it is not the same in every case, since every individuals built is different from others.

My son was 10 in September, stands 5 foot 7 inches, and weighs 190 lbs. Is that reasonable? He's very active in football, an absolute terror! He also plays soccer and basketball.

The answer before this is totally wrong. A healthy ten year old should not weigh "like 75 pounds" It is absolutely unhealthy. A healthy 10 year old should weigh around 90 to 100 pounds. There is a girl in my fifth grade class who is 11 and weighs 54 ponds. Her ruler is longer than her waist and it is about 7 in when you hold up the ruler to it. And no surprise that her best friend is 60 pounds.

And she thinks shes fat.

I'm 10 and I have hard bones which took me from age 7 (38) age 8 (45) age 9-10 (48) so I seem to be originally 38 or 20 kilos BTW I'm 103 in pounds (20 pounds is totally underweight for a ten year old but being underweight is sorta cool)

Could be, but ask yourself
1-has he been growing quickly (some kids do and they are having problems with the rest of their body catching up-but it will)
2-Does he stay hungry (he may need frequent meals and snacks-the rib sticking kind, though not unhealthy. My son was similar and I just let the child eat since he seemed to be burning everything off. I have not regretted it. )
3-If he doesn't seem to be hungry, his body's natural alarms may be unaware due to what it's accustomed to

Sir,if you truly love your child, you will do what ever your child needs to get to a healthy weight (Ido not say skinny but healthy). How long do you want him to be able to live life and do you want it to be a good one? No, it won't be easy and at first he will be angry probably, but at least a better life he will have. The only better love would be the message of salvation and love in Christ Jesus.

I think a 10 year old should be anything between 6 stone and 8 stone; if they are heavier it doesnt matter as they are still growing. There shouldnt be a set weight for children unless they are very under/over weight
