In brief: Childhood obesity

First make sure it's not a medical condition.
A pediatrician should be consulted about this. There could be a referral to see if there's psychological and/or emotional problems that go along with the obesity. Sometimes parenting classes and education helps in terms of what is healthy nutrition, how to model it for the child, and how to help a child with personal limits.
