It is important to eat food items which suit our age, because the nutrients that are important in your youth may not be the same when you grow older.
It is said that maintaining a balanced diet throughout life is important, but it is equally important to have the diet at par with our age and stage as the key dietary requirements changes from time to time.
These seem to be the fastest years of one’s life full of adrenaline rush and the excitement of trying everything possible for a young teen. This rush causes some serious nutrition risks which include skipping breakfast, snacking, eating fast foods and missing out on fruit, vegetables, and wholegrain. The body during these years needs vitamins for health and wellbeing which are often ignored because of late night awakening, and an addiction to processed or takeaway foods.
With a need to look and feel great at work or when out with friends, one should focus on antioxidant nutrients which protect the skin, hair, and nails, such as vitamin C and selenium. Nuts, seeds, fruit, and vegetables are all great sources of this.
The focus for these years should on bone health. Key nutrients for bone health include magnesium and calcium. It is observed that more than a fifth of young women doesn’t get enough of these nutrients. Wearing makeup also prevents our bodies from making enough vitamin D.
It is advisable that just 15-20 minutes of sensible sun exposure on the face and arms in summer is a great way to boost vitamin D levels.
