Hi Holly,
This might be more relevant a question for our DietDoc forum, as you have made mention of your child's overweight problem, but not mentioned any details pertaining to disordered eating. Go into the DietDoc forum and request a dietician referral, but be more specific on the area in which you and your son (if he lives with you) reside. If you need advice with regards to his problematic eating behaviour, either the dietician and/or a psychologist might be required. I'd be happy to advise you if you have questions on his problematic eating habits per se.
