124: Do Children Need Less Nutrients Than Adults?

Chris Masterjohn Lite Episode 124


Does a growing child need a *less* nutritious diet than an adult?

You would think so, looking at the RDAs! Yes, some of them are higher during childhood growth phases, such as calcium. But many of them are lower, and not because we know children need less but simply because they were scaled down by bodyweight.

Should a child half your size who eats twice as much food as you eat a diet that’s only 25% as nutrient-dense? 

I doubt it. 

Tune in for my thoughts on the topic and what I think we should do about it.
