3. Will carbohydrates make children fat?

No!

Carbohydrates do not make anyone fat. Carbohydrate is an important nutrient to support children’s physical and mental development. Foods high in carbohydrates provide an excellent source of energy for children’s active play. More importantly, carbohydrates provide the primary source of energy for the brain.

So, carbohydrates help children learn! Adults can help optimize children’s growth and development by offering children nutrient dense carbohydrate foods such as whole grain breads, cereals, pasta, and grains, which are great ways to ensure children, get the energy they need from carbohydrates.
