Too much fat in a diet can push out the healthier items. If children fill up first on fried foods and snacks, there will be less room and less desire for the healthy parts of the diet, like fruit and veggies. It makes sense to start your child’s meals with low-fat foods and fresh greens. You can reserve higher-fat items for the end. This will make the kids fill up on the healthy basics. It will, then, take the edge off their appetite. The consequence will be a reduced risk of overeating higher-fat dishes and a lower risk of obesity.
