Podcast: Kath Megaw Talks about the Ketogenic Diet and Her Book, Real Food – Healthy, Happy Children
The pediatric dietitian Kath Megaw recently spoke to Pippa Hudson about her new book Real Food – Healthy, Happy Children, co-authored with Daisy Jones, Phillippa Cheifitz and Jane-Anne Hobbs.
Megaw says it took her about a year or two to change her family over from a highly refined, processed food diet to a healthier “real food” way of eating. She’s been working with the Ketogenic Diet since 1999 (a diet that is high is fat and protein), so she wasn’t scared of removing carbohydrates from children’s diets and finding alternative sources of energy.
In the interview, Megaw reflects on the success she’s achieved with diabetic children as well as her own teenage daughter, a ballerina who now eats healthy, natural food.
“Every change needs to be sustainable,” she says.
Real Food – Healthy, Happy Children contains easy-to-prepare recipes that are also easy on the wallet.
