Dark Chocolate Can Give Your Teenager a Healthy Boost!

Hey parents! Dark chocolate can be a luscious snack for your growing teenager...

Here is a great article on Medical News Today, all about how we can help our teenagers take on a healthy diet! Here's more from this encouraging article:

"A grab-and-go breakfast is often the only option they'll consider, so have a selection of healthy cereal bars, toasted tea cakes, bagels and a full fruit bowl visible. Stock up your fridge with smoothies, mini juices, drinking yoghurts and milk. Even if their choice isn't the healthiest, getting their body and taste buds in the habit of wanting some food before they leave the house is a great step forward.



Have an evening family meal with different types of cooking and a wide range of vegetables to choose from. Involve them with menu planning, cooking and shopping if you get the chance; having some of their friends over for a friend feast could be a great incentive to get them involved. Have plenty of healthy snacks at home, so both their hunger pangs and their bodies are satisfied: dried and fresh fruit, rice and oat cakes, unsalted nuts and dark chocolate."

  2. I really love chocolates whether it's milk chocolate or dark chocolate. Yeah, it's true that some chocolates can make you fat and can cause tooth decay, but if you regularly brush your teeth, you can avoid tooth problems. I remember when I was in Hanahan. Dentist referred by my mom's closest friend, reminds his patients to regularly brush their teeth, floss after eating (it is also good to floss after brushing), and gargle mouthwash. It is also good that you visit one of the good (for example Hanahan) dentists.
