    Article - En anglais

    Study objective

    The present study was conducted to determine the effects of applying different fat reduction strategies to the overall nutrient profile of diets for preschool-age children.


    Computer modeling techniques were used to modify the diets of children (ages 2 through 3 and 4 through 5 years old) to meet contemporary dietary recommendations (<30% of calories from total fat, <10% from saturated fatty acids, and <300 mg of cholesterol daily).

    Fat reduction strategies were applied to a 1-week menu that included preschoolers' favorite foods.
