Essential Vitamins for Teens

  • B12 and Folic acid are required because of the rapid development of tissue synthesis.
  • Zinc, magnesium and calcium are needed for strong bones and to increase bone density.
  • Vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin E are required to ensure that newly formed cells function in a healthy manner.
  • Vitamin D and vitamin B6 are needed in greater amounts during the teenager years for healthy skeletal and tissue growth.
  • As the amount of calories increases, the requirement for vitamin B1, vitamin B2, and vitamin B3 increases as well.

Fuel for Growth

People go through a lot of physical changes — including growth and puberty — during their teenage years. Eating right during this time is especially important because the body needs a variety of vitamins and minerals to grow, develop, and stay healthy.
Eating a variety of foods is the best way to get all the vitamins and minerals you need each day, as well as the right balance of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, and calories. Whole or unprocessed foods — like fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, lean meats, fish, and poultry — are the best choices for providing the nutrients your body needs to stay healthy and grow properly.
It's OK to eat foods like potato chips and cookies once in a while, but you don't want to overdo high-calorie foods like these that offer little nutritionally.
To choose healthy foods, check food labels and pick items that are high in vitamins and minerals. For example, if you're choosing beverages, you'll find that a glass of milk is a good source of vitamin D and the minerals calcium, phosphorous, and potassium. A glass of soda, on the other hand, offers very few vitamins or minerals — if any.
You can also satisfy your taste buds without sacrificing nutrition while eating out: Vegetable pizzas or fajitas, sandwiches with lean cuts of meat, fresh salads, and baked potatoes are just a few delicious, nutritious choices.
If you're a vegetarian, you'll need to plan carefully for a diet that offers the vitamins and minerals found primarily in meats. The best sources for the minerals zinc and iron are meats, fish, and poultry. However, you can get zinc and iron in dried beans, seeds, nuts, and leafy green vegetables like kale.
Vitamin B12, which is important for manufacturing red blood cells, is not found in plant foods. If you don't eat meat, you can find vitamin B12 in eggs, milk and other dairy foods, and fortified breakfast cereals. Vegans (vegetarians who eat no animal products at all, including dairy products) may need to take vitamin supplements. If you're thinking about becoming a vegetarian, talk to your doctor or a registered dietitian about how to plan a healthy, balanced diet.
What you can do to help
Adolescents are becoming more independent and making many food decisions on their own. Adolescents tend to eat more meals away from home than younger children. They are also heavily influenced by their peers.
Meal convenience is important to many adolescents and they may be eating too much of the wrong types of food (such as, soft drinks, fast-food and processed foods).
Further, a common concern of many adolescents is dieting. Girls may feel pressure from peers to be thin and to limit what they eat. Both boys and girls may diet to 'make weight' and 'look good' for a particular sporting or social event. So we need to try to encourage a healthy weight, making food choices that are healthy and being involved in some physical activity each day.
The following are some tips to help adolescents develop healthy eating habits:

  • Arrange for teenagers to find out about nutrition for themselves.
  • Encourage and support their interest in health, cooking, or nutrition.
  • Take their suggestions, when possible, regarding foods to prepare at home.
  • Experiment with foods outside your own culture.
  • Have several nutritious snack foods readily available. Sometimes, teenagers will eat whatever is convenient.
  • If there are foods that you do not want your teenager to eat, avoid bringing them into the home.
  • Avoid buying high calorie desserts or snacks, such as snack chips, regular soft drinks or regular ice cream.
  • Provide a good role model of healthy eating and living for your teenager to follow.
  • Discuss the following healthy eating recommendations with your adolescent to help ensure a healthy eating plan:
    • Eat three meals a day, with healthy snacks.
    • Eat plenty of fiber and limit the use of salt.
    • Drink a lot of fresh filtered water.
    • Try to avoid or at least limit caffeinated drinks and drinks with a high sugar content.
    • When cooking, try to steam, bake (without added fats or oils) or broil instead of frying.
    • Try to avoid high sugar and refined carbohydrate foods.
    • Eat fresh fruit or vegetables for a snack.
    • Try to eat at least five servings of fresh fruit and vegetables per day.
    • Eat more chicken and fish than red meats.
