Fast Food and Fat

We all need sources of healthy fat in our diet every day; the key is to choose foods with healthy fats. A good rule to follow is to eliminate trans fat from your child’s diet, reduce the amount of saturated fat and supply them with healthy sources of unsaturated fats found in vegetable oils, avocados, nuts and seeds.

Fats are essential but choose wisely
Healthy fats are usually liquid at room temperature
Reduce the amount of fast food and fried food in your child’s diet
Fats high in omega 3 fatty acids (fish oil) are good for growing brains
Limit saturated fats and avoid trans fat (partially hydrogenated oil)
