Adolescent Nutrition

Brain development, maintenance and function are greatly affected by the foods that we eat. It is essential that the diet during adolescence contains a broad range of nutrients that allow the brain to work at its optimum level. Nutrition not only impacts the ability to learn, but can also affect mental health. With anxiety and depression rising in the teenage population it is important to equip them and their parents with the knowledge to feed their brains properly. Additionally, the correct balance of nutrients is essential so their bodies can store adequate nutrients to prepare for future pregnancies and the development of their babies’ brains. Educating adolescents about what an overall healthy balanced diet looks like and promoting this, along with key health messages about how nutrition can impact the brain, is vital.
