Thanks for your query.

A normal weight for an One year old according to Indian Standards would be around 7.5 to 9kgs.

Since there is rapid growth in height compared to weight , children look lean.There is no need to worry,your child appears to be of optimal weight.

Supplement him with good protein diet like sprouts, pulses, eggs etc which would help him to gain good and stable weight.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
