Healthy Kids : Health Tip: Kids Don't Need a Low-Fat Diet

Posted October 22, 2016

(HealthDay News) -- It's important for kids to eat well and to practice healthy habits, but a low-fat diet isn't necessary and may even be harmful, experts say.

The American Academy of Pediatrics explains:
  • If dietary fats are replaced by added sugars in a child's diet, it may do more harm than good.
  • Healthy fats are essential for brain growth and physical development.
  • Healthy fats, such as those in wild-caught fish and whole milk, are heart healthy.
  • But not all fats are healthy. Kids (and adults) should avoid trans fats, found in many fried or processed foods.
