What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the percentage of children aged 2-4 living in households with an income less than 200% of the federal poverty level who are obese. For children aged 2-4 years, obesity is defined as BMI-for-age above 95th percentile.
Why this is important: 
Childhood obesity has both immediate and long-term health impacts. Children and adolescents who are obese are at greater risk for bone and joint problems, sleep apnea, and are more likely than normal weight peers to be teased and stigmatized which can lead to poor self-esteem. Moreover, obese youth are more likely to have risk factors for cardiovascular disease, such as high cholesterol or high blood pressure. Finally, overweight and obese youth are more likely than normal weight peers to be overweight or obese adults and are therefore at risk for the associated adult health problems, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, several types of cancer, and osteoarthritis.

Childhood obesity has more than tripled in the past thirty years. Healthy eating and regular physical activity can lower the risk of becoming obese.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 2,714 U.S. counties and county equivalents.
