You often wonder why you should eat healthy at your age. Why are your parents nagging you nonstop ------ What's wrong with burgers, fries, and soda? Why can’t you just live your life as you wish?

The fact is that poor eating habits in the young age definitely set the stage for health problems in the adult life. The latest research suggests that heart disease can start as early as childhood although the symptoms may not be obvious until you get older. But if you're eating a lot of unhealthy fats (like in those burgers and fries), those fats could be starting to clog your arteries right now.

Besides heart disease, unhealthy eating can lead to diseases, later in life, like:

  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Some cancers    
  • Osteoporosis

It's never too early to start eating healthy. So make the change now and enjoy a healthy life.

Your Health Matters!

As a teenager, you go through many changes. Your body is on its way to becoming its adult size. You may notice that you can't fit into your old shoes or that your jeans are now 3 inches too short. Along with these changes, you are probably becoming more independent and making more of your own choices. Some of the biggest choices you face are about your health.

Healthy habits, including eating a healthy diet and being physically active, can help you feel good, look good, and do your best in school, work, or sports. They might also prevent diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, osteoporosis, stroke, and some cancers when you are older.
