Lisa ... I just wanted to commend you on taking an active role in your daughter's health. It seems like you are doing it the way it should be done. Not discouraging her from eating but encouraging eating the healthier foods. Promote the positive instead of making her feel bad about a less than stellar choice. I think you are doing a great job. I also wouldn't worry about her having a caloric deficit. As long as she feels full, happy & healthy and full of energy then she is getting enough. Guidelines are not set in stone and they don't always work exactly for every person. .... A free nutrionist would be awesome! Definitely take advantage of that service.
