Losing baby fat reduces risk of heart disease, study says

(CNN) - Chubby children can grow up to have healthy hearts, as long as they eventually lose the baby fat!

A new study suggests overweight kids who slim down, end up having a normal risk of heart disease.  

Finnish researchers say decreasing obesity between childhood and adulthood significantly lowers risk factors.

The study was published in the latest version of the New England Journal of Medicine.
