Any suggestions for helping overweight toddlers?

Does obesity start as a toddler? Many are picky eaters and it is difficult to get them to eat a balanced meal. Any suggestions?

Dear Kristin
Obesity can start very early, but it is generally due to overfeeding, not because a child eat small portions or refuses to eat certain foods like vegetables. Click on 'Child' and 'Nutrition' and read the articles on how to get small children to eat, what they need to eat and problems associated with childhood feeding.
