When he’s eating healthy and has plenty of exercise / running around I wouldn’t be too concerned. My 5yr old has Down Syndrome and LOVES her food. She eats healthy, no junk, no sugary items and eats diary free. Her Pediatrician said he thinks she’s a bit overweight and I could try to give her about 10% less food. However my child doesn’t understand. I’m trying to be moderate in what I offer and offer her healthy food & snacks and when she asks for food all the time try to delay and distract. However it’s not the end of the world when she’s a bit chubby.
