As we all know, our teens just want to eat what they want to eat, hasn't changed much since they were much younger, we all want what tastes good to us, but this is when your teen needs to supplement their diets to head off deficiencies which bring on all kinds of issues.

Fuel for Growth

People go through a lot of physical changes - including growth and puberty - during their teenage years. Eating right during this time is especially important because the body needs a variety of vitamins and minerals to grow, develop, and stay healthy.

Eating a variety of foods is the best way to get all the vitamins and minerals you need each day, as well as the right balance of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, and calories. Whole or unprocessed foods - like fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, lean meats, fish, and poultry - are the best choices for providing the nutrients your body needs to stay healthy and grow properly.

It's OK to eat foods like potato chips and cookies once in a while, but you don't want to overdo high-calorie foods like these that offer little nutritionally.

To choose healthy foods, check food labels and pick items that are high in vitamins and minerals. For example, if you're choosing beverages, you'll find that a glass of milk is a good source of vitamin D and the minerals calcium, phosphorous, and potassium. A glass of soda, on the other hand, offers very few vitamins or minerals - if any.

You can also satisfy your taste buds without sacrificing nutrition while eating out: Vegetable pizzas or fajitas, sandwiches with lean cuts of meat, fresh salads, and baked potatoes are just a few delicious, nutritious choices.

If you're a vegetarian, you'll need to plan carefully for a diet that offers the vitamins and minerals found primarily in meats. The best sources for the minerals zinc and iron are meats, fish, and poultry. However, you can get zinc and iron in dried beans, seeds, nuts, and leafy green vegetables like kale.

Vitamin B12, which is important for manufacturing red blood cells, is not found in plant foods. If you don't eat meat, you can find vitamin B12 in eggs, milk and other dairy foods, and fortified breakfast cereals. Vegans (vegetarians who eat no animal products at all, including dairy products) may need to take vitamin supplements. If you're thinking about becoming a vegetarian, talk to your doctor or a registered dietitian about how to plan a healthy, balanced diet.


What you can do to help?


Adolescents are becoming more independent and making many food decisions on their own. Adolescents tend to eat more meals away from home than younger children. They are also heavily influenced by their peers.

Meal convenience is important to many adolescents and they may be eating too much of the wrong types of food (such as, soft drinks, fast-food and processed foods).

Further, a common concern of many adolescents is dieting. Girls may feel pressure from peers to be thin and to limit what they eat. Both boys and girls may diet to 'make weight' and 'look good' for a particular sporting or social event. So we need to try to encourage a healthy weight, making food choices that are healthy and being involved in some physical activity each day.

The following are some tips to help adolescents develop healthy eating habits:

  • Arrange for teenagers to find out about nutrition for themselves.
  • Encourage and support their interest in health, cooking, or nutrition.
  • Take their suggestions, when possible, regarding foods to prepare at home.
  • Experiment with foods outside your own culture.
  • Have several nutritious snack foods readily available. Sometimes, teenagers will eat whatever is convenient.
  • If there are foods that you do not want your teenager to eat, avoid bringing them into the home.
  • Avoid buying high calorie desserts or snacks, such as snack chips, regular soft drinks or regular ice cream.
  • Provide a good role model of healthy eating and living for your teenager to follow.
  • Discuss the following healthy eating recommendations with your adolescent to help ensure a healthy eating plan:
    • Eat three meals a day, with healthy snacks.
    • Eat plenty of fiber and limit the use of salt.
    • Drink a lot of fresh filtered water.
    • Try to avoid or at least limit caffeinated drinks and drinks with a high sugar content.
    • When cooking, try to steam, bake (without added fats or oils) or broil instead of frying.
    • Try to avoid high sugar and refined carbohydrate foods.
    • Eat fresh fruit or vegetables for a snack.
    • Try to eat at least five servings of fresh fruit and vegetables per day.
    • Eat more chicken and fish than red meats.


Do your teens need Multivitamins?

They’re not children anymore, but they’re definitely not adults. Teenagers are in a tough spot, in many areas of life—socially, emotionally and physically. Their bodies change at a very rapid pace, with growth spurts that transform their body size and sleep and eating patterns, not to mention hormone fluctuations that affect their skin appearance and mood.

Multi-vitamins are a great way to support good health during the teenage years. A study published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association found that teenagers who took multi-vitamins were healthier—in diet and lifestyle—than non-users. In a population of 2,500 U.S. high school seniors, vitamin takers ate better, were more physically active, less likely to be overweight, had lower rates of smoking and watched less television than those who did not take vitamins.

A balanced diet is crucial for teenagers to stay healthy and develop normally both physically and mentally. Unfortunately, most teens don’t eat well—they skip meals, pig out on junk food, don’t eat the nutrients needed to support active/athletic lifestyles and often experiment with vegetarian and other diets without knowledge of how to do it properly.


Teens Who Take Multivitamins Have Healthier Lifestyles

Summary:

Teenagers who take a daily multivitamin supplement have a healthier diet and lifestyle than those who don't take vitamins, reports a study in the December Journal of the American Dietetic Association

As part of the Child and Adolescent Trial for Cardiovascular Health (CATCH), the researchers analyzed data on height, weight, diet, and health behaviors for more than 2,500 U.S. high school seniors. Their goal was to discover whether teens who took vitamin supplements differed in terms of diet, exercise, and other health habits. The lead author was Lindsay Reaves of University of Minnesota School of Public Health.

Twenty-five percent of the teens reported taking a daily multivitamin supplement. Females were more likely to take vitamins than males, and whites more likely than minority members.

Vitamin use was related to some important differences in lifestyle behaviors, with vitamin users having healthier lifestyles. Adolescents who took vitamins had a lower rate of smoking, 29 vs 33 percent; and were less likely to be overweight, 31 vs 37 percent.

Teens who took vitamins were also more physically active, including higher rates of participation in team sports and other organized sports. Vitamin use was also linked to a lower rate of television watching—less than 60 percent of vitamin users watched an hour of TV per day, compared with 70 percent of nonusers. The differences remained significant after statistical adjustment for other factors.

Taking vitamins was also associated with a healthier diet, as reflected by an overall "food index score." Adolescents who took vitamins actually consumed more calories, but got more of their calories from carbohydrates and protein and less from fats. Vitamin users ate more fiber; had more daily servings of whole grains, fruits and juices, and vegetables; and ate more fish. Although teens who took vitamins, had more desserts, they ate fewer fried foods and drank fewer soft drinks.

The American Dietetic Association recommends a diet including a wide variety of foods as the best strategy for optimal health and lower risk of chronic disease. Like adults, many adolescents take regular vitamin and mineral supplements. The new study is one of the first to look at the relationship between vitamin supplement use among teens and diet and lifestyle factors such as physical activity and overweight.

"Adolescents who use multiple vitamin supplements have healthier dietary and lifestyle behaviors than non-users," the researchers write. They remind dietitians to ask teens about vitamin use—what types of supplements they take, how often, and why. Teens with a healthier diet are more likely to take vitamins, and thus are probably at lower risk of having poor nutritional status.

However, "Supplements are not substitutes for healthy dietary patterns," the researchers conclude, unfortunately this is a tough task to get our teens to eat well. Adolescents should be encouraged to adopt such healthy patterns, rather than rely on dietary supplementation for adequate nutrient intake, again, easier said then done!
