According to a new study by the Institute of Education, girls are more likely to be overweight than boys by the age of seven!
The statistics show that nearly one in four girls are overweight by that age, compared to one in six boys!
We think that parents need to pay much closer attention to what their feeding their children when they're that young, regardless of whether or not they have boys or girls!
Those are eating habits that will follow them through the rest of their lives if we don't try and stop it now!
