In brief: No
If by aha, you mean american heart association the answer is no.
The issue is the amount of calories a child needs to sustain normal growth given by the rule: 1, 000 + agex 100 ex: a child age 5 needs 1, 500 cal daily. Articles have been published describing growth retardation in families were parents became obcessed with fat content of meals, but calorically depriving their children.
