In brief: See below:
According to the national cholesterol education program's expert panel on blood cholesterol in children and adolescents, the acceptable level for total cholesterol in kids 2 to 19 years old is less than 170 mg/dl.
Their LDL cholesterol should be less than 110 mg/dl, HDL levels should be 35 mg/dl or greater, but preferably over 60, and triglycerides should be 150 mg/dl or less.
