If you want to add another aspect to your report on why kids were taken off then put back on, you should consider adults who were put back on the diet after being off of it for so long. I’m not sure if there are any adults on this site, but my dietian told me about some adults going off the diet and feeling horrible, like headaches and other illnesses, and then once they got back on, they felt a lot better. You don’t have to make it another major topic, but you could just use it as a comparison. Hope that helps!
