Hi Jewel-Kate,

I’m Patricia – Nutritionist for LFLC.

I believe kids are really great at knowing what their body needs.  Just keep offering healthy foods and keep it in line with your family’s food values.

I will say, however, that kids do well with a bit more carbs than adults.  Just make sure that the carbs are centered around vegetables, fruit and whole grains.  Have raw veggies always available for when they are hungry.

Hope this helps!
