I ask this question because I see reports of what paleo peeps tend to feed their children.
I see the odd sweet potato thrown in but even with sweet potato at every meal and moderate fruit, the diet would be less than 100g carbs a day.
Do you think this is a good idea? Just going from gut feeling (heh) rather than extensive research on the subject I'm going to say no. Kids need lots of calories and starch with added fat is a good way of achieving this.
Most of us would be aghast at the idea of feeding a child a low fat diet, so I think equally a low carb one might not be the best idea.
Kids tend to have very good carb tolerance and usually this means ketosis comes a lot easier. Long term ketosis for children just seems like a bad idea.
I have no children myself and cycle my carb intake (though anything above 40% seems to trigger BG issues in me) so feel free to ignore my ramblings, but does anyone else feel concerned about this?
