Is the Mediterranean Diet Good For Kids

Scientists have been documenting the health benefits of the Mediterranean diet for adults. Recently, they have started to investigate the potential benefits of this diet when it comes to children, as well.

The diet is easy to follow, and it mostly involves fruits, vegetables, unrefined grains, fish, and oil. At the same time, the diet allows just skim or low-fat dairy products, and it is linked with better memory function.

Mediterranean Diet Adapted For Children

However, when it comes to kids, the American Academy of Pediatrics' recommendation is that children under the age of two should consume whole milk.

"Infants triple their birth weight by one year and quadruple their birth weight by two years. During this period, the baby's brain and nervous system are making amazing gains in size and complexity. Because the brain and nervous system are largely composed of fat tissue, it is reasoned that the baby should have a higher fat diet during this period of time," according to the Healthy Children Organization.

Additionally, the diet also includes nuts, but the academy believes that these products represent a high-risk choking hazard and it recommends using them carefully in the diet of children who are younger than four. Adults are encouraged to drink small amounts of wine, which is also part of the diet. Being illegal until the age of 21, the beverage doesn't make the subject of the recommendation for children. Experts in nutrition, however, believe that the Mediterranean diet is generally healthy for kids.
