Nutrition at ages 11, 13 and 15
Abstract:Nutrition is important for children's development and long‐term health. Eating fruit during adolescence, for example, in place of high‐fat, sugar and salt products, can protect against health problems such as obesity, diabetes, and heart problems. Moreover, eating fruit when young can be habit forming, promoting healthy eating behaviours for later life.
