Hi,

Here is an article that describes Down Syndrome and references the medical conditions that can be associated with it for some children, including obesity: http://www.education.com/reference/article/Ref_Down_Syndrome_4/

You'll find more articles about Down Syndrome in this info center:
http://www.education.com/topic/mental-retardation-child/

And here's a special edition that Education.com produced about obesity prevention: http://www.education.com/special-edition/obesity/

Thank you for asking!
