In brief: Child's bad breath

Child's bad breath could be caused by sinusitis, post nasal drip, GI problems, inadequate oral hygiene, candidiasis and a host of other conditions.
See a pedodontist and pediatrician for an evaluation.

In brief: Lots of reasons

Most often in children bad breath from infected teeth/gums, especially if teeth are not being flossed daily, or from infected tonsils.
Please have your dentist/pediatric dentist and your physician/pediatrician take a look and advise you.
