At 3.5 Years Of Age Future Obesity May Be Predicted

Wrong. You can predict it before conception.
Researchers can predict which children are most likely to become obese by examining their mothers' behaviour around their birth, according to a recent University of Montreal study published in the Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine. "Although behaviour is extremely hard to change and is also influenced by a complex tangle of influencing factors in the environment, I hope these findings will help improve the social and medical services we offer to mothers and infants," said lead author Laura Pryor, a PhD candidate at the university's Department of Social and Preventive Medicine. The findings come as the province of Quebec, like other societies, grapples with a surge in childhood obesity over the last generation.
Fat parents have fat kids.

If the parents are fat prior to conception you can bet that the offspring will be fat.

No need to wait 3.5 years.
