Apart from the physical risks, a high body mass index (BMI) can make life more difficult for children. It can lower their status among peers and damage self esteem. These problems can develop into behavior and learning difficulties, and can lead to depression.

Children with a high BMI may be presented with difficulties in life. Not being able to be as active as some of the other children may make your child not want to go outside and play, instead they may want to stay inside. Being overweight can lead to a decrease in self-esteem which should be avoided as often as possible at a young age. Focus on feeding your children healthy meals, remember, they are what they eat.
