Teens, did you know unhealthy dieting can stop you from growing to your full height? Your body needs calories and other nutrients to grow and develop fully. That's why most teens shouldn't "diet."
Your bones take in the most calcium during your teen years and early twenties. The best sources are milk, yogurt and cheese, and most teens need the equivalent of three cups of milk daily.
If you don't eat breakfast, your body is like a computer without power.
Eating cookies, candy or other sweet foods before an athletic event won't give you an energy boost.
Eating smart and moving more will help you feel good, look good and do your best.
