There are many different things that you can do to eat healthy during your adolescence. For example, make sure to eat three meals per day and if you choose to snack between meals, make healthy choices. Drink water each day and try to avoid any drinks that are high in sugar such as soda or fruit juice. If you are cooking, aim to boil or bake your food rather than fry it as those are much more healthy options.
- Make sure that you are eating three meals a day and include healthy snacks in between the meals.
- Try to increase the amount of fiber in your diet while decreasing the amount of salt that you use daily.
