youth and body image

The other night I was babysitting a 3 year old girl. Her bedtime was 8:00, she had dinner at 6:00, and she said something at 7:45 which stuck with me.

She wanted a gogurt, (a little yogurt filled tube for kids) but I told her she couldn't have one because it was too close to bedtime. She replied, "because I'll be fat?"

I was taken aback by this, coming from someone so young. So my question is, how young were you when you became concerned with your body? This is my first post here, so I'm not really sure if I'm going about this the correct way, but I'd also like to hear everyone's opinion on situations like this and age related selfconsciencness.
