There is nothing embarrassing about telling your parents that you want to eat healthier, they would probably be thrilled! Eat lots of veg! Ditch the WHITE rice and the MARGARINE!!! Those are two things that are sooo bad for you. What are you eating at school?!? You need to be eating every 2-3 hours to keep your metabolism working.
You won't need to go on a full out diet especially at your age but try to make wiser choices eat more! Hard to believe for some but if you aren't eating a minimum of 1200 healthy foods your body goes into STARVATION mode and you gain weight not lose!
"Clean Eating" - eating healthy is the only way to loose weight and keep it off! Exercise, eat clean and you'll feel great and look amazing!
Start "Clean Eating", personally I find this to be the best plan since it's just eating "real" foods! I've been following Tosca's Cooler Plan and have seen great results with that, this might work for you too!
Read Tosca Reno's Clean Eating Recharged book. Here are "The Eat-Clean Principles" from page 21 of her "Recharged" book.
What To Do
-Eat More - eat six small meals each day.
-Eat Breakfast every day, within an hour of rising.
-Eat a combination lean protein and complex carbohydrates at each meal.
-Eat sufficient (two or three servings) healthy fats every day.
-Drink two or three liters of water each day.
-Carry a cooler packed with Clean foods each day.
-Depend on fresh fruits and vegetables for fiber, vitamins, nutrients and enzymes.
-Adhere to proper portion sizes.
What To Avoid
-Avoid all over-processed foods, particularly while flour and sugar.
-Avoid chemically charged foods.
-Avoid foods containing preservatives.
-Avoid artificial sweeteners.
-Avoid artificial foods (such as processed cheese slices).
-Avoid saturated and trans fats.
-Avoid sugar-loaded beverages, including colas and juices.
-Avoid (or do you best to limit) alcohol intake.
-Avoid all calorie-dense foods containing little or no nutritional value. I call these anti-foods.
-Avoid super-sizing your meals.
Additionally, healthy foods include:
Beans of all kinds
Canned salmon, packed in water
Canned tuna, packed in water
Fat-free plain yogurt
Fresh fish (cod, salmon, tilapia, etc.)
Lean ground turkey
Low-fat cottage cheese

finger foods for a 6 month old?
hiya try these, my cousin gives these to her now 7month old and he loves them, thier not hard to make either , i made them a few times for him.
soft baked peaches - diced
small dices of ripe banana
small bits of ripe mango
dices of ripe pears
small dices of melon
small bits of avocado
kiwi - diced small (seeds should be ok for baby over 10 months old)
small dices of mixed fruits for a "finger fruit salad
soft baked sweet potato dices or sweet potato fries
soft baked white potato dices
small dices of soft cooked carrots
small dices of soft cooked peas
small dices of soft cooked broccoli
small bits of soft cooked green beans
small bits of soft baked butternut or acorn squash
small dices of soft cooked veggies mixed for a "veggie finger medley"
Meat, Cheese and Others:
tofu cubes "dusted" with cereal dust or wheat germ and diced into tiny cubes
soft cooked pasta (ditalini or cut up rotini)
small bits of soft cheeses
small dices, shreds of soft cooked chicken, fish, beef or turkey
(mix with baby's favorite puree as a "sauce")
cereals such as Multi-Grain Cheerios or Oatie-Os
petite toast points with a fruit puree spread or thin cream cheese
scrambled egg yolks
Apple Turkey Loaf/Sticks:
1 lb ground turkey
1 whole egg or 2 egg yolks, beaten
1/2 cup pureed carrots
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup unprocessed natural wheat or oat bran
1/4 cup bread crumbs
pinch of basil
pinch of garlic powder
Place ground turkey in a large mixing bowl.
Add the egg/yolk, carrots, applesauce, spices, bread crumbs and bran.
Mix well - If this mixture appears too dry, add more carrots or applesauce. If this mixture appears too wet, add more bran and/or bread crumbs
Place mix into a lightly oiled (olive oil) loaf pan and bBake at 350F for approx. 45 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean. **You may wish to cover with foil to prevent the top from burning
When finished baking and cooled, remove loaf from pan and slice as you would for bread. Break into small bits for finger feeding or Mash or chop gently
This recipe may also be made into "Turkey Sticks" for Toddlers and older babies who are able to handle more textured/chunky finger foods.
Variations could be cook the ground turkey separately, add the other ingredients and puree
Tofu Finger Cubes
1 Package Firm Tofu (we love Nasoya)
Crushed/Powdered Cereal, Crackers, Granola or Wheat Germ
Slice tofu into small cubes that are manageable for your baby.
Toss tofu in a Ziploc bag with crushed Cheerios, crushed graham crackers or crushed granola
Close bag and toss to thoroughly coat tofu cubes – serve as finger food for snack or as protein source at a meal.
Sweet Potato Fries
6 medium to large sweet potatoes
Scrub sweet potatoes, clean and/or peel them if baby cannot handle the skins
Preheat oven to 400degrees
Cut into sizes that will suit your needs or, cut into strips that you may then cut down after baking
In a large bowl, add about 1/4 cup of olive oil.
To this you may add cinnamon, ginger, a pinch of brown sugar, etc.. (I add cinnamon and sometimes a bit of brown sugar).
Toss the cut up sweet potatoes into the bowl and stir so that the potatoes are drenched with the olive oil mix.
Dump mixture onto a baking sheet and drizzle the remaining olive oil in the bowl over the potatoes on the baking sheet. Stir and swirl the potatoes on the baking sheet before placing in oven. Bake for approx 30-45minutes or until tender
The skins may become crispy but the actual potato "meat" will not. They will be a bit mushy like. These will not look or bake up like regular white potato French Fries so don't be alarmed!
This is the basic way to do it and you can improvise as much as you want
My cousin whos here also told me that dont be TO strict on salt or sugar or oil as babies do need this in thier diet, she sees what you are saying though but dont eleminate them completely just dont add them to the food.
