As teenagers attend class, they learn about important school subjects like biology and history, so should they learn about heart-healthy food. Today more than ever food’s available to students have added salts, fats, or sugars, and are generally unhealthy for the developing body. Often when consuming these unhealthy products, students are aware that some products aren’t good for them, but are simply unaware of others like processed juice, which will often have high amounts of sugar added. It’s important to establish an understanding of what is good for the body and what isn’t early on in life as recent studies have suggested that the healthier kids are as they grow up, the greater the chance that they will remain that way later on in life. Young men and women need to be able to have a good understanding of nutrition and healthy recipes so that they can lay these foundations.
