Chubby children can grow up to have healthy hearts, as long as they eventually lose their 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 cardiovascular risk factors.

The study appears in the New England Journal of Medicine.
