Nutrition & Exercise

Part of being a teen is learning to take care of yourself and your needs. While you might think of getting a job and learning how to drive a car, this can also involve really basic stuff, like eating healthy and getting exercise.  When you’re running from class to after school clubs to homework, it can be really hard to make sure you’re staying healthy.

Sometimes it’s as easy as being able to understand what’s in the food you are eating, and carving out a little bit of time in the morning or afternoon to stretch your legs. A few simple changes can make all the difference in staying healthy. When you’re getting the nutrition you need, you feel great and you’re ready to take on that busy schedule!
