Q.

Weight difference - how to get the same

My 6year old identical twins differ in their weight. In my previous question you said that twin B, that weights 23kg, is above average. (Twin A weights 20kg)

What is causing this difference in their weight - both take in more or less the same and both are very active.

Your twins are not identical I presume. There is nothing that you can do to get them to weigh the same.
