My son is 14 years old. He weighs 115lbs. He has been working out and wants to drink protein shakes. Is this safe for him? If so, what amount?
Yes . Though there isn't much reliable research on whey (protein) powder in kids, it is generally accepted as safe. Because of this though, a proper daily amount is difficult to judge. Instead, i usually recommend using one's diet to add protein to the body: milk, lean meats, eggs, and peanut butter are good sources. Kudos for encouraging exercise!
