Meet Arya Permana: The World’s Heaviest Child

Arya Permana the 10 year old who has become the fattest child in the world ever, currently, weighs 192kg and is categorised as morbidly obese.

According to the Daily Telegram the child is now being put on a strict diet as his parents are afraid he’ll die.

““I do not know any other way to stop him from gaining more weight than to give him less food. He is perpetually hungry and has an enormous diet, and can actually eat meals of two adults at one time,” cried his mother.

His rapid weight-gain has forced him to quit school because he can no longer physically walk.

Arya eats five meals a day, consisting of rice, fish, beef, vegetable soup and Tempeh — a traditional soy patty — which is normally enough to feed two adults.

Due to his astonishing weight, his parents have been unable to find clothes that fit him, leading to Arya wearing just a skirt.

His mother Rokayah Somantri is very troubled: “My son is growing up at a rapid rate and I am worried for his health.

“He is always tired and complains of shortness of breath. He only eats and sleeps, and when he is not done with both, he jumps into the bathtub and stays there for hours.

Arya, the second son of Rokayah, 35, and her husband Ade Somantri, 45, a farmer, was born at home via natural birth and weighed a normal 3.2kg.

“But it was only a few years later when he bloated and his weight went out of control, we realised he was suffering from a disorder and needed medical attention.”

Rokayah and Ade took Arya to several doctors in their village in Cipurwasari in West Java, Indonesia, but surprisingly, doctors did not find anything abnormal about his alarming weight.
