It's on the 'your lighter side' website. It's pretty much cauliflower cooked then ground in the food processor with salt, onion powder and pepper. Then rolled into tot shapes in parmesan cheese, frozen for a bit to maintain the shape the baked.

I think I love you!

Next head of cauliflower, I'm doing this! (Well, since these get frozen, I'll need to buy 3 heads, so I can do this AND my regular mashers.)

follow-up question: how many carbs for kids?

We saw a nutritionist who recommended 300 g carbohydrate per day for my overweight nine-year-old, but I KNOW that he gains on that many carbs.

We've recently started reducing carbs and adding more protein and fiber, but I wonder what our target should be for the daily carbs. I kept a careful food log one day and the carbs came to 210.

I don't want him to stop eating fruit. I suppose every person is different, so the carb target must vary from one child to another, but I'm curious what other families have found to be effective but workable.

I'm also going to post this question in the new children's health forum, since that seems like it might be the ideal place for it. If an administrator wants to help me clean things up with one post pointing to another, I don't mind.

Perhaps look at South Beach to get an idea of a lower carb food plan. It is recommended that children start with phase 2, so there is no cutting out of fruits (or grains, if that's your choice).

can you boil down South Beach for me?

I looked at the South Beach website, and it's hard to tell how many grams of carbohydrate per day they are recommending. Do you have an idea what the numbers might be?

I don't mind eliminating or minimizing grains. I do want to continue giving him fruit in reasonable quantities.

Hi pae, how are things going?

I know this thread is a few months old. I just found this forum on LCF and it's a subject that I'm thinking about so much with my own daughter. I've read so many of the helpful posts and am trying to learn from them also.

I remember being the fat girl with a skinny sister, so I can relate to how difficult it is when it's family eating at stake, not just one child. My daughter is 4 yo, and I'm desperately hoping she doesn't adopt the eating habits I had as a child.

Psssst...Nothing tastes as good as ketosis feels!
