Not ok-necessary!: If you are a growing child, your protein requirements are higher than for adults. The current requirement is 0.55 grams per pound!

Lean proteins.: Focus on fish, pork, egg whites, turkey and protein - the real thing, not cold cuts or canned meats. And grill or bake or broil - no frying. If you don't eat meat, beans and soy are great but you need to learn how to combine them to make complete proteins for proper absorption. Protein good and necessary at any age.
