Adolescence and the teenage years are challenging when it comes to nutrition and food choices. It’s a period when parents find they have little control over kids’ eating habits and access to junk food. At the same time, body image and self-esteem issues take center stage for many young adults, especially girls. We explore how parents, school lunches, and peers influence how kids see food and nutrition.
