What is a Well Formulated Ketogenic Diet for Kids?
So what does a ketogenic diet for kids look like? There are a couple recommendations that a different when it comes to kids and keto. First, kids need more protein (per pound of lean mass) than adults. While adults have a protein goal of about 0.8 times your lean mass (in pounds) for grams of protein per day, kids need much more to help fuel their growth. Healthy growth needs lots of complete amino acids to build new muscles and help kids grow. For young kids around 5-8 years old or so, they need about 3.0 times their lean mass for their protein goal each day. Pre-teens and teens need about 2.0 times their lean mass.

So what does that look like? Letís say you have a 8-9 year old (like our son Micah) who is about 60 pounds. He is pretty lean so his lean mass is maybe 50-55 pounds of lean mass. So his protein goal is about 3 times that or 150 grams of protein a day. He is on the upper edge of the 3.0 range so he generally could get between 2.0 and 3.0 times his lean mass so a goal of 100-150 grams of protein a day is a good place to start. But generally speaking, just donít limit the protein. Let them eat as much as they need along with all the healthy fats that come with it.

The other change we do for growing kids is we donít do any form of fasting (intermittent or otherwise). Kids growth demands require a lot of fuel and their stomachs arenít big enough so they need 3 meals a day and sometimes a bedtime snack. But they donít need to be snacking all day long. If they eat until full with three meals they donít generally require any snacks except sometimes in the evening.

And if you want to talk about what is the real SUPERFOOD, organ meats like beef liver top anything out there. Beef liver is one of the most nutrient dense foods out there. So we suggest adding a serving or two a week to kick up your nutrient density. Donít like beef liver? We like to hide it so our boys donít even know it is in there. We make a recipe that has a spicy flavor profile like our Breakfast Chili and sub some of the ground beef for ground beef liver. Mix it together and with the spice of the chili you donít even know it is in there!



There are MANY micronutrients specific to vegetables, two that come to mind are in apples and kale.

The comparison chart uses beef. Is this convensional beef or grassfed beef? ANd what percent of the diet is beef versus chicken, pork and fish. My understanding is that poultry is by far the protein of choice in the american diet.

Did not see specifics. Looking.
