Goodnight mother,

Thanks for the question.

Child development is indeed something that parents need to pay attention to. Every child can have different growth and development, but there are limits that are said to be normal according to their age. The nutritional status of children can be categorized into good nutrition, less nutrition, poor nutrition, or over nutrition. Body weight is one of the things that can determine nutritional status, in addition to height, head circumference. The normal weight of a 2 year old child is about 12 Kg. That is, if your child at the age of 2 years reaches 20 Kg, it can be categorized as overweight. However, to ensure this, you should immediately take your child to a Pediatrician, so that the doctor can evaluate and provide appropriate advice. Avoid adjusting the child's diet without consulting the doctor first.

The following article can add insight to mothers: Obesity in children and its risks. Come to the Pediatrician with a note of the type and amount of food intake, breast milk, or formula that the child usually consumes daily, so that the doctor can learn and provide the best advice.

So hopefully it can help.
