How To Help Your Teen Eat Healthy

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

Are you looking for ways to help your teenager son or daughter eat healthier this year? If yes, we are here to help by providing you information and ideas on how your teen can eat healthier, quicker and make easier meals. Read below to get started.

 

Eating the right foods in moderation will help your teenager maintain health and keep a balanced mood. Teenagers need specific nutrients to function successfully during the day. In fact, the most important meal is breakfast for a teenager. The body needs a daily supply of the following:

 

Ø Protein. This makes up components of muscles, hair, nails, skin, eyes and internal organs such as the heart and brain. Protein helps teens grow and keeps red blood cells healthy. Some great protein foods are eggs, cheese, soy products, fish, nuts, chicken, beef and pork. If you are a vegetarian, a great way to get the appropriate amount of protein is through consuming soy products, beans and nuts.

 

Ø Carbohydrates.  They are the body’s main source of energy and help the nervous system, muscles, and internal organs function. You can get enough carbohydrates by having fruits, vegetables, whole grains and beans in your diet.

 

Ø Fats. They are the body’s energy reserve and keep your body warm. Fats have nutrients of vitamins A, D, E and K. Fatty tissues will protect the body’s vital organs from trauma and temperature changes.

 

 Here are some great meal ideas for healthy, quick and easy consumption for your teen:

 

 Breakfast

 Ø Have a soy shake. You only need a cup of vanilla, chocolate, soy milk or milk from a cow. Blend this with banana and 2 ice cubes. This will improve your mood and how you function during the day.

 

Ø Eat Oatmeal. Oatmeal with chopped nuts, raisins, banana and strawberries is a great source of protein.

 

Ø Drink Orange Juice. This will give you the calcium and vitamin C you need to start your day.

 

Ø Eat Fresh Fruit. Some great fresh fruit to eat first thing in the morning are oranges, pears, strawberries, bananas, peaches, and blueberries. Eat it with yogurt and granola.

 

 Lunch

 Ø Have an egg salad sandwich on wheat bread with lettuce and tomato.

 

Ø Eat veggie burgers and veggie pizza.

 

Ø Have a turkey, chicken, tofu, cheese, or vegetable turkey wrap.

 Dinner

ØPasta with pesto sauce, tomato sauce and vegetables is a great dinner meal.

 

Ø Have stir-fry vegetables with tofu, shrimp or chicken.

 

Ø Broil Salmon with vegetables.
