Where can I find a "requirements" list for foods (starches, dairy, veggies, fruits, fats.....) for children????? I keep finding them for adults or based on calorie "needs", but how do you KNOW how many calories your child really needs per day? CDE says a minimum of 1600 calories, with 180 grams carb per day for Nick (age 7.5, 50lbs). If he is getting less carbs than this (say, under 90) can he produce "starvation ketones"? Will he still grow well if we go heavier on the fresh veggies and other nutrient dense food groups and lighter on carbs????? Just wondering............. I don't necessarily "plan" what he will eat day to day and somedays he eats plenty of "carbs" and some days not. Those days he has more veggies and "free" foods (cheese, protein...). TIA!!!!!!!!!!!
