A 10-year-old who scoffed his way to become the world’s fattest child is being put on a crash diet as his parents are afraid he’ll die.
Arya Permana weighs an eye-watering 30 STONE (192kg) and is categorised as morbidly obese.
His rapid weight-gain has forced him to quit school because he can no longer physically walk.
Arya gobbles down 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 sarong.
But now his parents are attempting to cut his diet – for fear he might die.
His mother Rokayah Somantri said: “My son is growing up at a rapid rate and I am worried for his health.
“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.
“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.
