The number of children and teens who are overweight or obese has reached epidemic proportions. The diet can only be followed by children and teens if it is recommended by a doctor, who also monitors the diet program to ensure that weight loss does not occur too rapidly, which could stunt growth. But remember, young children tend to eat the way their parents do. That’s why it’s important that the whole family eat healthy, balanced meals. We suggest that you cut out sugar, processed food, junk food and other refined carbohydrates. You can also set a good example in being physically fit.
