Nutrition on the Web for Teens  

Review by Debbie Mazo


Nutrition on the Web for Teens Notorious for bad eating habits, most teens are frequent offenders when it comes to indulging in fast food and skipping key meals. To support adolescent growth spurts, teenagers need a healthy diet rich in nutrients. Help your teenagers get with the program by pointing your browser to Nutrition on the Web for Teens.

Developed for students by students, this nutrition guide for teens serves up the facts when it comes to good eating practices and general health issues. From informative topics like recommended dietary allowances to interactive tools like a Nutri-Quiz, this international site has it all for readers speaking English, German, or Spanish.

When it comes to healthy eating, misinformation rules. If you want to find out whether it's fact or fiction, head over to the Myths section listing ten myths and the truth behind the confusion. For example, if you always thought extra protein developed more muscles, think again. The ingestion of protein by itself does nothing. If you eat excess protein, it's deposited as fat requiring you to work out even more to make use of it. In the Case Files section, you can read up on some real life histories where food misconceptions led to serious consequences.

Making meals for teens can be a loveless chore. Explore the Recipes section and you'll find choices guaranteed to please both parents and teens. Featuring mostly vegetarian selections, you'll find selections for breakfast foods like Blueberry Pancakes and lunch and dinner foods like Hot and Spicy Noodles with Vegetables. Take mealtime one step further by using the Calorie Database including a food group pyramid with recommendations for daily servings and calorie calculations.

Still want more? Then, check out the forum and live chat where you can share your views with others fans of the site. Or, skim through the Teen Health section representing a collection of common teen health issues like dreaded acne and peak growth. With more than enough unique facts and tips, Nutrition on the Web for Teens can set you straight when it comes to making the teen years healthy ones.
