Rising Obesity Rates Among American Children


Nowadays, 20% of American kids between the ages of 2 and 19 are considered fat, which is a worrying trend in children's health. In contrast to adults, children's obesity is assessed by comparing their body mass index to peers of the same age and gender rather than using a set BMI threshold. If a child's BMI is at or above the 95th percentile, which indicates that they are larger than 95% of their peers, they are classified as obese.
