Nutrition/eating habits for healthy teenagers

healthy eating habbits for teens

By eating a varied and balanced diet as shown in the Eatwell Guide, you should be able to get all the energy and nutrients you need from the food and drink you consume, allowing your body to grow and develop properly. Some important nutrients to be aware of are: iron vitamin D calcium Eating healthily doesn't have to mean giving up your favourite foods. It simply means eating a variety of foods and cutting down on food and drinks high in fat and sugar, such as sugary fizzy drinks, crisps, cakes and chocolate. These foods should be eaten less often and in smaller amounts.

Good sleeping habits

Sleep is food for the brain. During sleep, important body functions and brain activity occur. Skipping sleep can be harmful — even deadly, particularly if you are behind the wheel. You can look bad, you may feel moody, and you perform poorly. Sleepiness can make it hard to get along with your family and friends and hurt your scores on school exams, on the court or on the field. Remember: A brain that is hungry for sleep will get it, even when you don’t expect it. For example, drowsiness and falling asleep at the wheel cause more than 100,000 car crashes every year. When you do not get enough sleep, you are more likely to have an accident, injury and/or illness.

Peer pressure/dealing with peer pressure

Everybody, no matter what age, is faced with pressure to 'fit in'. In our teenage years this pressure can be even stronger because no one wants to feel like an outsider. Peer pressure can sneak in and take over your life choices. There are things you can learn to help you deal with it when it is a problem.

Communicating with teachers

Communicating with teachers

You can't foster a positive relationship until you actually meet the teacher in person. Attend the school's open house or schedule a brief appointment to introduce yourself, collect information, and offer to help through volunteering or donating items to the class. Showing you are willing to be active in your child's education sets the tone for the rest of the year.
