Way before to start the action for loose weight of your kid,he has to be evaluvated.Evaluation of overweight children and their families requires sensitivity and compassion, because the general public often perceives overweight/obese individuals as unhealthy, unintelligent, unhygienic, and lazy. Overweight children often have decreased self-esteem, and their overweight parents may have similar psychosocial issues due to the stigma of being overweight. Obesity is a chronic medical problem that requires management in a manner similar to that of other chronic disorders. Explaining this construct to the family in an objective and nonjudgmental manner helps in building a trusting relationship that is important for successful treatment. 
The initial evaluation is focused on exploring dietary practices, family structure, and habits because alteration of these factors is usually the basis of successful treatment. It is also important to determine if there may be an underlying secondary cause of obesity or if there are current comorbidities from being overweight.

Judging others from their appearance is what makes them suffer the most, comments and unnecessery statements is what lead them to the deepest levels of their problem. It is hard to see a child overweight, i grew up with an overweight sister, she ate more when she was depressed, she struggled with her weight, until one day she decided to do a bariatric surgery to loose weight,she almost died. The reason for her misery was others. If you want your child diet, eat healthy and try herbalife
