Health Tip: Help Teens Learn to Read Food Labels
What parents can do

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Many teens are just starting to figure out how to make healthy food choices. This is a great time for parents to help them learn how to read food labels.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests that parents:

  • Teach teens to focus on choosing foods that are high in fiber and protein, and low in sugar and salt.
  • Remind teens about limiting meals to appropriate portion sizes.
  • Discuss how packaging can be misleading, and how to avoid unhealthy fare.
  • Suggest electronic apps that focus on getting enough nutrients in every meal and snack.
