In brief: Many harmful effects

Medical consequences of childhood obesity are many.
Obese kids can get cholesterol plaques in the arteries, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes. Liver damage from fatty liver (fat building up inside the liver) occurs in teenagers, but heart damage should not appear until adulthood. Other problems include being teased by others and being too out-of-shape to fully participate in games & sports.
