Doctors and scientists are concerned about the rise of obesity in children and teens because obesity may lead to the following health problems:
 
Heart disease
Type 2 diabetes
Asthma
Sleep apnea
Social discrimination
 
Stigma and Self-Esteem
 
In addition to suffering from poor physical health, overweight and obese children can often be targets of early social discrimination. The psychological stress of social stigmatization can cause low self-esteem which, in turn, can hinder academic and social functioning, and persist into adulthood
