Obesity in children

Weight - loss - children; Obese - children

Obesity means having too much body fat. It is not the same as overweight, which means a child’s weight is in the upper range of children of the same age and height. Overweight may be due to extra muscle, bone, or water, as well as too much fat.

Both terms mean that a child’s weight is higher than what is thought to be healthy.
