childhood obesity
Childhood obesity is a medical condition that affects children and teenagers.

Everyone has a body shape that is just right for them but sometimes we can store excessive body fat. If a child or adult stores too much fat they can be classified as obese. A sign of childhood obesity is a weight well above the average for a child's height and age.
