Teens and Nutrition

  • Adolescent Nutrition
    For growing teens, nutrition experts say it's better to watch total fat consumption in the diet, rather than to count calories.
  • Prevention of Heart Disease Starts in Childhood
    You may think of heart disease as a problem for adults, not your young children. But diet and exercise habits started in childhood can begin a lifetime of heart health, or a lifetime of heart damage.
  • The Importance of Eating Together as a Family
    Eating together as a family has many benefits not only for you, but also for your children. This lifestyle habit may actually help to fend off childhood obesity.
  • Vegetarian Teens Need Diet Advice
