UK gives bad fat advice

The Half Sigma blog writes:
The UK government says you need to give your children less fat:
Children should be stopped from drinking full-fat milk from the age of two to prevent clogged arteries and heart disease in later life, the Government's Food Standards Agency will say today.
But the very same day, the government of the Netherlands says that children need to eat fat. ... I’m with the Netherlands on this one. They have the world’s tallest people, so they must be doing something right.
He's right. Kids need fat. We have a lot of fat kids, but it is not from eating too much fat.
