Dr. Noha Abu Al-Wafa, a pediatrician consultant, replies: If you are worried that the child's weight is more than normal you should visit the pediatrician, and there he will make different measurements to know whether the child is overweight or not and can compare your child's normal growth rates with the normal growth rates of children through and Develop a child's own growth chart called a child's growth chart so you need to know the child's height to know the ideal weight.

As for the causes that lead to obesity, like most chronic health problems, obesity is caused by overlaps between the influence of genes, environment, behavior or eating habits.

Many studies have shown that there is not a significant difference in the amount of food eaten by the obese child and between the physical activity he exercises and those of the non-obese child, but perhaps there is a slight difference in eating and activity all the time with genetic readiness may actually reach weight gain.
