Usually once a teen has started a sport they tend to loose that baby fat. Have them each fruits and veggies. Dont buy a lot of junk food. Have them eat at the table with you and porportion their meals.


I would say for your average teenager that a diet is not appropriate.

With that said, teaching them to eat healthy and exercise routinely is absolutely appropriate!

If your teenager is having issues with weight encourage them to be more active and cut our sweets without nagging. nagging can make it worse, but gentle discussion can help quite a bit. And remember, the healthy eating is not just for them, it needs to be a whole family effort!
