Obesity means having too much body fat. It is different from being overweight, which means weighing too much. The problem is global and is steadily affecting many low- and middle-income countries, particularly in urban areas. Children become heavy and obese for different reasons. The most common causes are genetic factors, lack of physical activity, unhealthy eating disorders, or a combination of these factors. Only in rare cases is being overweight caused by a medical disorder such as a hormonal problem. A physical exam and some blood tests can rule out the possibility of a medical condition as the cause for obesity.

A child's total nutrition and activity level play an important role in determining a child's weight. Today, many children spend more time being inactive. For example, the average child spends approximately four hours each day watching television. As computers and video games become gradually more popular, the number of hours of inactivity may increase.

The prevalence of obesity in children has increased at an upsetting rate. Globally, in 2013 the most number of overweight children under the age of 5 to 17. In developing countries, children who are obese are at greater risk for bone and joint problems, sleep apnea, pulmonary dysfunction, allergy, immunity disorders, social and psychological problems such as stigmatization and poor self-esteem.
