Unfortunately this isn't my experience with my overweight 10 year old. If he has a large protein and fat filled breakfast he is still hungry a few hours later. Maybe it works for most 10 or 11 year olds, but mine has I am sure inherited insulin issues from both his parents and since he's not in ketosis he is at the whims of his blood sugar levels.

I think it is great that a child is on a moderate LC diet. Less sugar the better!

Thanks for the ideas! Mitzi - that sounds like a great idea re: separate post for lower carb kids' lunch ideas.

I kinda relate with this thing though we should still monitor and guide them towards good health. We know being healthy is our responsibility but children still need a lot of things to learn.

Personally I think the "kids need carbs" is part and parcel of the pushing high carb diets that goes to kids and adults alike.

The experiment continues and wee man is doing we'll. Less tantrums and a bit more settled.

Of course, we're now the house where bacon and eggs, or pancakes for breakfast is boring, and cereal is a treat.....

My son loves having cereal when he spends the night at a friends house. That or a banana!
