The Healthy Teen Years template will help teens, aged 14 to 18 years of age, adopt permanent healthy eating habits. This template will encourage and empower teens to take responsibility of their health by becoming aware of the foods they eat. Teens are growing and developing quickly and need a calorie and nutritional intake that will support their development, gender, age and activity level. This 7-day template does just that with three healthy meals and two snacks per day that will fit around the teenÆs school schedule and include foods that are good sources of fiber, provide essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and contain no added sugars. Lunches are planned so that they can be packed for school and dinners were created so they can be enjoyed with the whole family.
