The average weight for a 2 and a half year old boy is 12.5kg.Your son's weight is obviously well below this average weight.His weight is on the so-called 10th percentile line of the children's growth chart.This means that he is in the lowest 10% group for weight for boys of his age. It would be best to ask your doctor to check him just to make sure that he is completely healthy.
