Ask on Inquiring Moms

Young children need fat in their diets to facilitate proper growth and development. Unless specifically recommended by a child’s doctor or a registered dietitian, children should not eat a strict low fat diet. It is prudent to limit their intake of artery-clogging saturated fats and to avoid heart-harming trans fats, but drinking exclusively fat-free milk and eating fat-free dairy products, especially before the age of two, may cause nutritional deficiencies. Even after the age of two, insufficient fat intake can interfere with the absorption of certain nutrients.
