Is my dd overweight?

Ah really? That's a relief! smile. Her dad gives me a very very hard time about her weight. Thinks she is too heavy and lacks stamina. I am permanently worried about the issues she is going to get from this:/

I put the numbers into www.nhs.uk/Tools/Pages/Healthyweightcalculator.aspx and it came out as Healthy weight smile

I have posted this in parenting as well, hope that's ok. My dd is 5yo, is 114cm tall and weighs 3 stone 7.5pounds. She likes her food a lot to be honest, and it can be a struggle to get her to take her mind off food. She is looking chubby round the face recently and although has a tiny waist, she is definitely chunkier than her friends.

Can anyone here tell me if those figures are too high? Thanks a lot.
