To the OP: YES! Jack eats what we eat. I do a lot of pan-frying and sauteing at home. He eats fried eggs almost every morning and enjoys the occasional french fry when we're out as well.

My own common sense tells me it's not the quantity of the fats, it's the quality. I think it would be foolish to put my developing child on a low fat diet, but it would also be foolish to let my son consume a lot of vegetable-based oils and refined starches and sugars. His favorite thing to eat is steamed broccoli and green beans, which I always generously butter with good quality, grass-fed butter.

Not sure how you can deep fry something and not have it create a transfat.
Plus, the oil used in the fryers is disgusting, imo.
It's called beef tallow and it's yummy. That being said, I don't deep fry at home because it's too messy and wasteful for the very occasional times I would use it.
