Case Study 2
Tony is an 11-year-old male whose favorite activity is his Playstation system. He loves to come home from school and start playing right away. He will usually grab a large bag potato chips and a soda from the fridge and snack while he plays. He will take a break for dinner, but then he heads right back to the game. Tony has always plotted around the 50th percentile for weight and height for age, but lately he has been gaining weight and is now greater than the 95th percentile for weight. His father is not concerned, reporting that he was the same way at his age but “thinned out” as he got older.
Should Tony’s weight gain be a concern, despite his family history? What recommendations could be made to the family? Develop a 2 day schedule and 2 days worth of menu’s to reflect a better balance in Tony’s lifestyle.
