A nutritious breakfast is always important, as it helps teenagers enhance their metabolism. Parents should help encourage their teenagers to eat high-fiber cereal and whole-wheat foods. Parents should also encourage their teenagers to eat healthy snacks (especially during school time). Teenagers should also learn to eat slowly and avoid overeating. When in school, they should always avoid high-calorie fast foods.
Some soda drinks and fruit juices may not be healthy, because they contain high calories. Parents should educate and encourage their teenagers to drink plenty of water, and if possible, avoid any sugary drinks.
