Nutrition for Adolescents

Gain practical and useful information on the process of adolescence and develop an understanding of the basic concepts of how different foods affect adolescents. 

You will look at some of the challenges they face and how adolescents are best supported nutritionally, with foods to incorporate and foods to avoid, in this fun, light-hearted workshop.

Along with the other challenges faced by adolescents, puberty and growth create significant additional nutritional demands to meet the physical and emotional demands of their growing and changing bodies. The diet of the adolescent also has a great impact on their moods, behaviour and self-image.

This fascinating short course covers the following topics:

  • Adolescence and the challenges of adolescence
  • Puberty, growth and physical changes and specific dietary needs to support these
  • Sleep changes and insomnia
  • Increased nutritional needs during adolescence

"I really enjoyed it! I'm still reading the course books now, it really opened my eyes to how the body processes food and how different foods make it function, which I wasn't really aware of before. I also liked that the assignments were based on your own life in a lot of ways, so you were forced to look at your diet and reflect on what you've learned..."
