Children who are obese are more likely than their healthy-weight peers to be uninterested in schoolwork and to struggle to cope with stressful situations, according to a preliminary study presented at the American Academy of Pediatrics' annual meeting. Researchers asked nearly 23,000 parents and caregivers of 10- to 17-year-olds about "flourishing" indicators, including doing required homework and showing interest in learning new things, and noted these factors could be influenced by social stigma.
