The teen years are the years when a whole lot of hormonal and psychological changes begin to take place in our bodies. That's because adolescence is the bridge between childhood and adulthood, as in, one is no longer a child but not even an adult yet. Diet is an important determinant of our physical and psychological growth and progress during teenage. Though unfortunately, teenagers are generally inclined towards the consumption of unhealthy, junk food, simply because it's much more tempting and 'convenient'. But it's instrumental to follow a healthy and balanced diet during teenage. Here are some helpful diet tips for the teenagers of today:

1. Balance Is The Key

Teenagers might at times end-up committing the mistake of eating too much of some nutrients and components and lesser of others. But, it is important to note that balance is one of the most significant factors of a healthy diet. A balanced diet will ensure that you are getting all your proteins, vitamins, calcium, carbs, fats etc. and not missing on anything. This helps in maintaining overall good-health and well-being.

2. Don't Miss The Breakfast


Breakfast is arguably the most significant meal of the day, owing to the fact that this is your first meal. It kick-starts your day. A healthy breakfast implies a good start and vice-versa. But, it is a common practice among teens these days to skip breakfast out of 'hurry'. But, truth be spoken, skipping the morning-meal may cause a lot of health problems in the long run as such weakness, headaches, tingling and a faster-than-normal heart rate.

3. More Fruits and Veggies

Munch more on green veggies and fruits than on pizzas and hamburgers. You'll live longer.

4. Don't Forget Water

Our bodies are more than 60 percent water. That makes it important already. Staying hydrated is important for better digestion, removal of toxins and wastes, improved bowel movement, better blood circulation, maintaining body temperature and so on. One simply can't afford to not drink enough water. A daily intake of 8 to 10 glasses of water is recommended.

5. Healthy Snacks

Despite going for heavyweight and calorie-rich snacks, opt for healthy and light options to satisfy those snacks-cravings of yours. Also, avoid late night munching and keep your supper light and easy-to-digest.
