i hope you mean 4 carb exchanges (60 carb grams--15grams per exchange)......  
to me that is kind of high for an 8 year old..... i dont even eat that many 
carbs.........
that's the whole idea of pumpin........ you figure out your carb bolus and 
thenjust eat sensibly whatever you want basically...... well, not go crazy 
with sweets, but you know..... it's supposed to be more flexible, not more 
rigid!!
