Nutrition for young people

Young people consume large amounts of energy during puberty. Their physical growth and changes require immense amounts of protein, calcium and iron. Hence, it is very important to understand the essentials of nutrition for young people in order to cater for their special needs.

Different types of food nutrients

A balanced diet is vital. A good mix of vitamins, dietary fibre, calcium and minerals in your daily diet is crucial. Fruits and vegetables are always much better for you than foods high in fat.
