Children grow at different rates and different children will have different healthy weights (based on things like BMI and height). The average height for a 8 year old boy is 45 inches and weight is 57.2 lbs. My eight year old is a little on the smaller side (only weights 50lbs.) but I know he eats a well-balanced diet and has a smaller frame so I am not worried. Average doesn't mean the goal someone should be aiming for. A child's pediatrician should be able to let you know if they are at a healthy weight or if there are any concerns.
