The teen years are among the most challenging, and not only because of sudden growth spurts and raging hormones. These are the years when children typically develop eating disorders such as bulimia and anorexia, eating habits that could lead to obesity, or begin vigorous training for high school, college or professional sports. This is why good nutrition should be the cornerstone of your teenager's development.
Proper menu planning and education about calorie intake, portion control and the way in which the body metabolizes food can help teenagers avoid the common mistakes that lead to obesity.
Those students training for athletic careers can learn which foods will help their body perform at its peak.
Teenagers with chronic diseases such as diabetes can learn how to prepare foods to meet the challenges of controlling their disease while living independently at college or away from home.
And every child can benefit from the knowledge gained by reading and understanding food labels and the role nutrition plays in our overall health.
