Chubby babies may end up being chubby teens, and then likely chubby adults.
A new study in the journal "Pediatrics" found chubby toddlers and preschoolers are more likely to be overweight or obese adolescents.
Out of 1,000 kids, researchers found those who were overweight at least once between the ages of two and four and a half were five times more likely to be overweight at 12.
Also, kids overweight at seven and 11 were more likely to remain so.
