Your son is not just overweight, he is obese. You need to encourage some sort of physical activity if you want him to lead a healthy life. HIs ideal weight according to his age should be 26.42 kgs, so you can imagine. Feet aches are because of the extra load that his feet have to carry and fatigue is again because of his being overweight. I would suggest that you consult a dietician and ensure that he loses his weight in a healthy way.
