The prevalence of childhood obesity in the United States grows each year. Childhood obesity increases the risk of serious medical problems including type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, heart disease, sleep apnea, osteoarthritis, polycystic ovary syndrome, and gall bladder disease. Obese children may also suffer from poor self-esteem if they are teased or bullied by others because of their weight.
