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
