Nutrition for teenagers aged 14-18
Teens are often more independent with their eating choices, with a greater proportion of their diet being consumed out of home. They can be reluctant to eat what’s prepared for them, instead opting for snacks, junk food and high-sugar choices.
This is far from ideal at a time when their bodies go through significant changes and sport, extracurricular activities and schoolwork demand ever more from them. Not to mention the effect of hormones and a busy social life!
So, it’s understandable if you’re a bit concerned about your teenager’s nutrition in these years. You might be concerned about low energy levels, that they might struggle to concentrate, or that they get sick a lot. Or maybe you simply worry that they’re eating too much of the wrong things and don’t get enough good natural nutrition.
Perhaps you’re finding that your teenager eats on the go at breakfast, skips family meals and resorts to fast food and sugary drinks. Maybe they get stuck behind the computer and snack all the time, and then don’t want to eat the healthy food you provide.
If any of these things bother you, you should probably consider providing a dietary supplement for teens such as Zeapure Smoothie Kick. It is the only all-natural, non-sweetened nutrition supplement specifically developed to top up the diets of teenagers.
