The issue is not cholesterol when you have carbs. The issue here (for me at least), is that when we have carbs AND fat going around in our system at the same time, the body recognizes and prefers the carbs as it's primary energy source. When it does so, the fat stores on your body.

To me, when you look at it this way, cholesterol isn't even the problem at all.
I don't know about your husband but children need fat; it is crucial to brain development. If she is getting carbs from goldfish crackers and applesauce she still needs fat. I wouldn't worry about inflammation with a child.
