FILE - In this Friday, March 9, 2012 file photo, first lady Michelle Obama does a bunny hop dance with pre-schoolers at the Penacook Community Center in Concord, N.H., as part of her Let's Move initiative. A new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine on Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2014 finds that much of a child's "weight fate" is set by age 5, and that nearly half of kids who became obese by the eighth grade were already overweight when they started kindergarten. Researchers think there may be a window of opportunity to prevent it, and "we keep pushing our critical window earlier and earlier on," said Solveig Cunningham, a scientist at Emory University.
