The desperate parents of a 60Kg (132 pounds) three-year-old have told how they can't make the giant toddler diet because they are scared of him.
Lu Hao, from China, is dangerously overweight, and at 60Kg, (9st 6lb) is FIVE TIMES as heavy as other boys his age.
He is getting so big his family are frightened of him — and have given up trying to stop the youngster from gorging on huge plates of ribs and rice.
His parents claim he throws vicious tantrums if he doesn't get third or fourth helpings of dinner.
And mum Chen Huan from Dashan, Guangdong Province, admits: "We have to let him be as if we don't feed him he will cry nonstop."
He has already been banned from nursery over fears his size might be a danger to other children, and usually plays alone at home.
But moving around is becoming tougher and tougher for the toddler, whose weight means he gets out of breath easily.
