And that would be a research team from Penn State University, warning that parents should not deprive their children of fat, despite all the hysteria about obesity.
"The authors said, 'Sufficient fat must be included in the diet for children to support normal growth and development.'
The authors said dietary fat recommendations are higher for children aged four to 18 (25 to 35% of energy) compared with adults (20 to 35% of energy)."
Gee, I could have told you that.
Interestingly, the only news articles I could find on this were published across the pond, in the UK. Hmm. Could there be a reason why this isn't being plastered across CNN?
