A new study finds that kids “weight fate” may be determined by the time they are 5-years-old.
Researchers from Emory University looked at more than 77 hundred children who were in kindergarten in 1998 in the U.S.
They weighed and measured the children seven times over nine years.
Researchers found kids who were overweight when they were five were four-times more likely to be obese than kids who were at a normal weight.
