Experts agree that kids need carbohydrates. They give young bodies the energy to be active physically and mentally, so kids need a lot of carbs.
The best kind of carb is called “combo carbs”, which include fruits, vegetables, yogurt, and oatmeal.
Combo carbs provide fiber, protein, and fat, making them slower to digest; and each carbo carb food has some amount of sugar. Slower digestion helps keep your kid’s blood-sugar levels steady.
