agree  Parrot: not "labis na timbang"?

  -> hi parrot--the purpose for the dual superlative (labis na pagkasobra) was to convey being "excessively overweight" i.e. "obese" (in lieu of direct one-word Tagalog equivalent)...maybe there's room for further polishing ;-)

Ang kakulangan ng sapat na pamamahay

at pangangalagang pang-kalusugan ay maaaring dahilan ng pagtaas ng sobrang katabaan ng mga bata.

I rendered probability as "maaaring dahilan" - a probable cause since it does not have a direct equivalent in Tagalog.

Obesity as "sobrang katabaan."

Pamamahay should be pabahay.
