Obesity

My child is 107cm tall, 3 and a half &  weights 25kgs. What should her weight be in relation to her height?

Your little girl is exceptionally tall for her age. Her height is on the 98th percentile line which means that in any group of 100 girls of 3 and a half years,she will be the tallest child. Her weight should be about 20kg to match her height, so she weighs about 5kg more than expected.
