    It could be sleep apnea. The condition is most often diagnosed in adults and usually associated with obesity. However, the condition can also plague children who are overweight.

    Snoring occurs when our airway is temporarily obstructed. The most common reason for snoring in children is sleep apnea. There can be subtle long-lasting effects. See a doctor to be sure.
