Fat Carbohydrate Fiber and Recommendations for Healthy Eating

The transition from the high-fat, milk-based diet of the young infant to the generally accepted adult recommendations for healthy eating should be gradual, beginning from the onset of weaning. There is little consensus as to when qualitative adult intakes should be achieved, although dietary modification is not recommended by any authority for children younger than the age of 2 years and most agree that an adult-type diet is appropriate from the age of 5 years. Some authorities recommend a gradual change between the ages of 3 and 5 years, whereas others suggest that for most children a low-fat, cereal/ vegetable predominant diet is suitable from age 2 years. If changes toward 'healthy eating' are made at too young an age, there is a danger that an inadequate energy and nutrient intake will result because infants and young children find it difficult to consume adequate quantities of such a bulky diet.
