Battle Obesity With Healthy Eating Habits in Children

A new government report says chubby kids don't necessarily outgrow their pudginess.

Researchers found kids who were overweight at age two, were five times more likely to be overweight at age 12.

The study contradicts the long held belief many people have that their kids will simply outgrow their "baby fat."

Doctors say these results show how important it is to teach your children good eating habits, no matter how young they are.
