The average weight for a girl of 2yr 7m is 13kg. Your daughter's weight is well above the average and lies on the 90th percentile line of the growth chart for children;this means that she is in the top 10% for weight for all girls of her age. There is obvuiously no need for you to be worried about her appetite. She will eat what she needs.
