I just read an article written by Prof. Tim Noakes. I really, truly like what I read!
And great to see that we have such similar views about kids, carbs and health!
This is what Tim writes on the subject:
Children and carbs
Babies particularly should not be placed on high carbohydrate diets since the proper development of their brains (and facial structures) requires that the majority of their calories comes from fat and protein. Yet many baby formulas are full of sugar and carbohydrate and cannot provide the proper nutrients for optimum development during childhood.
Similarly children who are obese already at a young age will most likely have CR and carbohydrate addiction and would benefit enormously by “banting”.
