    If you are looking into LCHF for your child, please speak to your child's diabetes consultant and paediatrician first.

    There are indeed many benefits to LCHF - however, a substantial dietary adaptation should not be undertaken by children without appropriate input and monitoring from a health team to ensure the child's growth is normal and their nutritional needs are being met at all stages of their childhood.

    By all means, ask questions, share your views and engage in discussion - but please speak to your child's diabetes team too.
