A three-year-old toddler from China already tips the scales at 60kg (132lbs), making him five times the size of a normal child his age. When Lu Hao was born he weighed just 2.6kg (5.7 lbs.). However, from the time he was three months old he began to gain weight rapidly. "His appetite is so good that for a meal he can eat three big bowls of rice, even more than I and his mother," said Hao’s father Lu Yuncheng. Since Hao was one-year-old his parents have tried to keep a careful eye on his diet. However, Hao’s mother Chen Yuan comments: "We have to let him be as if we don’t feed him he will cry nonstop".
