The researchers recognize that childhood obesity is an increasing and persistent problem in the United States, but they say that restricting fat intake isn't doing these children any favors. "It seems that children are very good at knowing how many calories they need in a day," Watkins says. "They are much better than adults at this. So let them decide how much to eat.
