Theres no restriction for them to eat fried items becoz they are more energetic n growing children ..they requires all sorts of calories...n also they wont each much only a few i wont restrict them in eating fried snacks,that too freshly home made.Equally give them fruits n vegs also to balance their nutritional requirements.
