Pediatrics
In brief: Overweight
The best diet for overweight children is a healthy and nutritious diet consisting of fruits, vegetables, protein (beans, peanuts and tree nuts, fish, white meat and lean beef), milk with reduced fat (preferably fat-free including yogurt), devoid of soda and juice but copious in water. Correct calorie counts for age should be exercised.
Do not forget that at least one hour physical activity per day.
