Teenagers are most likely the least healthy eaters. My son (16) invited a few of his friends over on Fridays for a pow-wow after school, and I make sure I have 2 or 3 snacks ready for them. Believe it or not, the plate of sliced carrots, apples and pears disappears as fast as the mini home-made pizzas and salsa n baked pits chips.
I discovered from their conversation, that they don’t eat raw veggies or fruit at home because they wouldn’t even think to have them. Reaching for a ‘bag’ or ‘box’ of something is so much easier.
When they stay over for dinner, they are surprised that we all sit together at the dinner table every night, say grace, and talk about our day.
It saddens me that many parents are so overwhelmed with life that they don’t find time to leave a simple healthy snack in the fridge for their teens, and perhaps a tiny ‘love you’ note! It would take less than 5 minutes and the effect would be immeasurable.
And so we impact the health of a generation not quite old enough or informed enough to take on that responsibility. I have been an at home Mom for a year (got laid off after 15 years at AT&T), but even when I worked full-time, I made sure there was something other than bread, chips, sweets and cereal for my kids to snack on.
And even with me being home and cooking nutritious meals, I have my son on this Multi-Vitamin, because there is no way he’s eating 6 – 7 servings of fruit and veggies a day.
