Childhood Obesity

Childhood obesity is a serious medical condition that affects children and adolescents. It occurs when a child is well above the normal weight for his or her age and height.

Childhood obesity often leads to health problems that were once considered adult problems — diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Treating and preventing childhood obesity helps protect your child's health now and in the future.
