Ten smart snacks for teens

Email News Alerts

A common misconception is that snacking isn't a healthy habit for growing teens. The truth is that most teens need snacks -- the trick is making healthy food choices in the right amounts.


When making snacks, use a small plate or bowl and to snack at the table instead of in front of the TV or computer. These habits help teens control portion size and take their time while eating so they don't eat too much. Be active as well.
