Are low-carb diets good for kids?
No diet is good for kids. You may have heard about some fad diets such as the Atkins Diet or the South Beach Diet. Adults follow these diets to lose weight. Most diets work at the beginning, but it's hard for adults to keep the weight off over a long period of time. As for kids, no diet is as effective as eating sensibly. You also need to exercise each day to keep you healthy and trim. So turn off the TV, get up and be active and eat your fruits and vegetables. Do I sound like your mother?
