When it comes to sweets, some children really can't help themselves.

British researchers found kids who ate more cookies or sweets were likely to have a gene linked to larger body size, causing them to overeat.

The results suggest some children may be hardwired to over-indulge in snacks and sweets. Parents should consult their pediatricians for more information.
