Growing Up Healthy: Fat, Cholesterol, and More
It's important for children and adults to be sensible and enjoy all foods but not to overdo it on one type of food. Also, no food should be forced or forbidden. When children think a food is forbidden by their parents, it often becomes more desirable. However, children should know that sweets and higher fat snack foods in appropriate portions are OK once in a while.
