Clinical trial finds childhood obesity can be controlled through portion size, carb cutting

Reuters reports on a Journal of Pediatrics study, which shows that parents can manage their children’s obesity by cutting portion sizes, as well as cutting carbohydrates, although the low-carb method was found to be the toughest for kids to follow.

Lead researcher Shelley Kirk of the Heart Institute at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center remarked, “One of the hardest things is that families need to change. So think about the eating plan that the entire family can follow and stick with.”
