    All her doc wrote was trim sugar and switch to 2% milk and shell be fine.
    Thanks doc that was really helpful but at least she not overweight :)
    She ate 2 servings of broccoli last night too I've been praying for her and I showed her a clip on how important healthy eating is. It seemed to work I guess she's a visual learner

    I found that since cutting out grains and sugar that my cholesterol has dropped every year even my doctor is jealous of it.

    2 of my 3 kids are in the same situation. My daughter tested at 375 at the age of 3. If high cholesterol runs in your family she will need medication when she gets older. For now, feed her a healthy diet and teach her how important being active is as she gets older. Healthy carbs are ok if she isn't overweight.

    I am so sorry to hear this. At 4 years old she has no control or say so over her health. Everything she eats, every activity she does or does not do is either guided by someone else or impressed upon her by example. The best thing you can do for her is be the best example for her. You can control what food comes into your home and you can prepare her meals. I would start there and ask her doctor or perhaps a nutritionist for a low cholesterol diet, menu, and grocery list. I would get out with her and begin doing family activities whether it is just going for a walk or playing ball outside with her. I wish you the best of luck. emoticon

    I am so sorry to hear this. Checkout some of the recipes on www.happyherbivore.com and www.forksoverknives.com . They are tasty, easy to make and kid friendly and have NO cholesterol. They definitely can't hurt. Good luck!

    Oh no. I"m so sorry. Poor lil Sugars. I hate to hear when babies are unwell. I don't have any advice for you. But I will keep her in my prayers.
