Suman Khatun, who is 6 years old, looks like a giant among her playmates. With 90 kilograms of body weight, Suman is five times heavier than children her age. She is believed to be the fattest kid in the world.
The girl from West Bengal, India has only 100 centimeter of height. Suman has a very large appetite. In one meal she could eat two dishes of rice, two bowls of fried fish, two fried eggs and some omelets. That’s just her lunch menu. At breakfast she could spend dozens of packets of biscuits, rice, dozens of bananas, and eggs in large quantities.
Her mother, Beli Bibi, 32, is not sure how many her daughter eats every day. Because, after eating food at home, Suman often search for food in their neighbors house.
“She’s always hungry all the time. If her food needs not met, she always cries. I do not like to see her sad, so I always give her food,” she said, according to the Daily Mail.
Suman is born with a normal weight, about three kilograms. Her body began to get larger uncontrollably when given milk. Her father, Jalal, 38, just work as a laborer finds difficulty to provide finance for the needs of their children’s milk. “The price of milk is very expensive in India. When Suman was a baby, I’m not able to buy milk as much as she needed,” she said.
To reduce hunger, this pair gave Suman solid foods prematurely. Since then, Suman became obese. At age 2 years old, her weight was more than 38 kilograms.
In a week Suman can consume 14 kilograms of rice, 8 kilograms of potatoes, 8 kilograms of fish and about 180 bananas and her favorite snacks and pastry cream. Suman was also never trained to do a lot of physical activity. Walking more than a minute, makes her sweat.
Everyday, Suman just watches television or look at hers sister activities, Shabnam, 13, who has a weight and size a half times smaller than Suman.
Her parents claimed to be clueless to resist the eating desire of Suman. “I’ve tried hard to forbid her to eat a lot, but she then rolls on the floor and begin to eat mud instead. I can not let my children eat mud so I had to let her eat more,” said Bibi.
Not only hunger at home, Suman also often eats at her neighbor’s house. Because of her appetite, Suman is often mocked by her friends. “I just ran and hid. Plus I do not get enough food at lunch, and hungry during school hours, I often feel sick. ” Said Suman.
The family doctor, Subodh Bandyopadhyay, 35, who treated Suman since she was a baby said that Suman’s weight is not appropriate with her age. He asked both parents of Suman to act strictly. “If she keeps eating the way she eats today, she would die of a heart attack in the near future. This is very worrying. ”
But, it seems that Sunan’s parents had lost way to control their child’s desire. “We made a mistake. We are helpless,” said Beli Bibi.Tagged with: fattest kid in the world, obese child, obese children, Obesity, Suman Khatun, Suman Khatun obesity, world's fattest kid,
