Our expert says:
I am a bit puzzled why you say your lassie is overweight, because the average weight for 4 to 5-year-olds is about 20 kg with an average height of 1.12 metres. Or do you mean she is 20 kg more than that (e.g. 40 kg??). If she is still very short for her age then weighing 20 kg may make her inclined to overweight. It is in any case, a good idea to cut out all sweets, chocolates, high-fat foods esp fatty snack foods, and all cold drinks if your daughter is overweight. If feasible take her for a walk every day and encourage her to be as active as possible.
Hope this helps
