    These meals might be nutritionally deficient, if they don't provide enough protein, minerals and overall calories.

    It is the process of inculcating ideas and attitudes. That is indoctrination.

    For children who burn thousands of calories a day? I ate the paleo diet as a child, plus carbs galore and still didn't have enough.

    ... Americans are heavily over proteined. There's no general need to supply kids with more protein.

    Whole grains are packed with protein anyway. The majority of these "low protein" meals still supply 33% of the protein a person needs in a day.

    so you're saying the meals do not provide enough calories?

    Would it be inappropriate for me to ask you to provide some facts to back that up?

    I ate between 2-4K calories a day. I don't have any records of it but I'm sure I exercised probably more than today's youth. They don't have the nutrition to keep up with the young me.
