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 is particularly troubling because the extra pounds
often start children on the path to health problems that were once confined to adults, such as diabetes, high blood pressure
and high cholesterol. Childhood obesity can also lead to poor self-esteem and depression. One of the best strategies
to reduce childhood obesity is to improve the diet and exercise habits of your entire family. Treating and preventing
childhood obesity helps protect the health of your child now and in the future. Below you will find resources and referral
information. In addition to reviewing these materials, you should talk to your doctor about whether counseling (also
sometimes called psychotherapy) might be helpful.
