A morbidly obese ten-year-old, who is reduced to wearing just a sarong as clothes do not fit him, has been put on a crash diet over fears he may die.
Arya Permana, named the world’s fattest child, weighs an eye-watering 192 kilograms and eats five meals a day consisting of rice, fish, beef, vegetable soup and Tempeh – a soy patty large enough to feed two adults.
Arya, from West Java Province in Indonesia, has dropped out of school as he can no longer walk and his mother Rokayah said he is ‘perpetually hungry’.
‘He has an enormous diet and can actually eat meals of two adults at one time,’ she said.
