From Caroline, child's age 9

I am not the parent of an obese child however I am very worried about my sister in law she is 9 she weighs 250 and her mom doesn't seem to really care. Her mom just giggles when she eats a whole cake or a large plate of summer sausage and cheese. All of the children in the family are large including my husband who has reached 400 pounds. I just don't want my sister in law to struggle with her weight and she is bigger than the other kids in the family at her age. I don't know what to do or if it's even my business. Any ideas
