 ```Hi fluffie, The Answer is Yes, beyond a doubt. A child could eat a quarter pounder with cheese and watch TV all day and still burn it off..

The calories spent in a particular activity vary in proportion to one's body weight. For example, a 100-pound person burns 1/3 fewer calories, so you would multiply the number of calories by 0.7. For a 200-pound person, multiply by 1.3.

 ```A four piece chicken nugget meal is 500 calories. If the kid is, say 70 lbs and a sedentary male, he would need about 1016 calories. It would be possible to work it off.```
 ```The answer is a resounding YES! Best of Health!```
