Obesity is a problem for some children, but not many. It can reduce life span as it can cause a heart attack, because fat can block arteries. It sort of makes a child handicapped, because obesity can cause people not to perform well on things, such as sport and athletics. Obesity is caused by bad diet in children, because people might say they eat too much 'junk food', like burgers, cakes and chips.

  2. Youth obesity

    Children's self esteems lower when they are obese because of society's influences on being thin. As they get more obese their social interactions with other youths decrease because of this influence. Now the low self esteem that develops leads to children no longer being around others thus making them become less active which helps to make children even more obese.
