Which of the following statements regarding fat in children’s diets is correct?

  1. a. Dietary fat is an important source of calories in a young child’s diet.
  2. b. The amount of saturated fat is not restricted in a young child’s diet.
  3. c. The amount of trans fatty acids is not restricted in a young child’s diet.

Summary Introduction

Introduction: Fats is the macronutrient which includes phospholipids, cholesterol, and triglycerides. Fats especially in infancy and early childhood are essential for neurological development and brain function. Dietary fat is fat that is consumed in the food.
