David Alvarez Jr.
9 years old - 4th grade student
Part of a large, close-knit, Cuban extended family, David Sr. and Carmen Alvarez have a growing problem: their son, David. Already pre-diabetic, David Jr. is only nine years old. Unfortunately he's already well on the way to health complications due to his weight.
David Jr. already suffers taunts at school about his size, and his angry reactions have gotten him into trouble. He's tired of being teased and wants it to stop, but one of his biggest problems is his father, David Sr.
David Sr. is also overweight and fails to see David Jr.'s weight as a problem that needs to be fixed. David Jr. idolizes his father, so Jillian needs David Sr. to admit there's an issue before she can do anything to help the family.
