How do you make your teenager eat and exercise to be healthy?

Answer: You can’t.

That’s why two registered dietitians wrote Fueling the Teen Machine, 2nd Edition. Friends, parents, teachers, websites, and doctors can offer ideas, but it really comes down to teens themselves to gain their own understanding about foods, diet, vitamins, and exercise as they grow into adulthood.

This book is the ultimate guide to navigating the world of nutrition and health and figuring out how to keep teen bodies healthy, strong, and happy.

Now updated to include:  

    •    Contains valuable information and talk directly to your teenager in a conversational tone
    •    Health basics covered in easy-to-use tables and lists
    •    Recommendations getting the most of out apps on smart phones
    •    Suggestions for online tools like the nutrition websites
    •    User-friendly reviews of health-related terms and definitions
    •    Coverage of weight management, sports nutrition, eating disorders, vegetarianism, fast foods
