Thank you, Jeff, for your quick response.

By a "fruitarian" diet, I was referring only to the flesh of sweet succulent fruits like banana, mango etc. Would such a diet provide adequate nutrients, and if not can you suggest what should be the maximum fruit-component of a diet while still obtaining sufficient nutrients from non-fruit sources?

On the question of exercise, if someone were to exercise a lot more, then would they typically need to eat more (assuming that their diet was healthy), or would they typically need food of lower nutrient density so as to increase their calorie-intake out of proportion to that of other nutrients?

I take your point that calorie reduction is better than excessive exercise.

Regarding the RDA etc tables for children, is it the FNIC site you recommend as a source?

On nuts & seeds, my apologies - I see you recommend 1-2 oz/day for adults.
