(UNDATED) - A childhood obesity study from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health indicates that more than 57 percent of today's children will be obese by age 35.

The study concluded that overweight children are likely to become obese adults, and only those children with a current healthy weight have less than a 50 percent chance of becoming obese adults.

Among its findings, the study said that 75% of two-year-olds with obesity will still be obese by age 35.
