| Filed under: HealthBodyObese

It's no secret that childhood obesity is one of the biggest health problems growing in the United States.

While it's obvious what all that weight does to the outside of a child's body, it's not always apparent how it is affecting the INSIDE of the body.

Check out the video above to see how obesity affects more than just appearances and why it's so important for parents to encourage their kids to lead healthier lives.
