My son has been on a GF and LF diet since he was 10 months old. We don't eat out often (last time was over a month ago), we don't eat a lot of red meat, he eats eggs with a slice bacon or sausage every 2 weeks (Saturday morning breakfast), if he has snacks they are typically apple juice or natural fruit snacks, and we have no family history of childhood cholesterol. He and his brother are very active boys and have a ton of energy.
At Josh's 2 YO appointment they did blood work and weighed is measured him. He is in the 30% for weight and 20% for height. His blood work came back with him having high cholesterol. The doctor said she will retest him in a few months but I am very worried about it. There isn't anything in his diet that would raise his cholesterol and I am very much against any kind of medicine.
