Currently, it is estimated that one in five children and adolescents (or 12.5 million) ages 2–19 years old are obese. Minorities represent the greatest risk of being obese.

Obesity is associated with serious health risks such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, high cholesterol levels and osteoarthritis, shortness of breath, sleep disorders, menstruation issues, and liver and gallbladder disease. In addition, there is a link between obesity/overweight and poorer academic performance, school absenteeism and psychological function.
