Lots of sources: Helping kids learn to eat wisely at a young age will help them all their lives! but most kids like fun food and simple flavors. Get them to help you harvest and prepare food, they'll have more fun eating it. Check out tasteofhome.Com for 10 great recipes. Jaime oliver is a great resource, also rob endelman.

Is nutrition to teens imporant?

Extremely: Nutrition is extremely important to teens. Their bodies and brains are still growing! in fact kids gain about 20% of adult height and 50% of adult weight during adolescence. Adolescent boys need 2, 500-2, 800 per day, while girls need around 2, 200 per day -- provided in the form of lean protein, low-fat dairy, whole grains, and fruits and veggies. Make junk food "alternatives" like baked fries.
