Children can most certainly eat a low carb diet, this is only beneficial for them. However if they do not suffer from obesity, diabetes or other elements like ADHD then you can add both fruit and vegetables grown beneath the ground and also potatoes (not french fries!).
Tips for things to add instead of pasta, rice or potatoes:
- Cauliflower mash
- Broccoli mash
- Avocado (whole or mashed with creme fraiche or mayonnaise)
- Fried mushrooms
- Boiled or grilled vegetables
- Cauliflower rice
- Salad (lettuce, tomatoes, peppers…)
- Gratins made with fennel, onion and cream in the oven.
