According to the World Health Organization, adolescents face intense, serious nutritional challenges. The years between 13 and 19 are an internal war zone, where young bodies are developing physically from children into adults. During this time kids will develop 50 percent of their adult weight, 50 percent of their skeletal mass, and over 20 percent of their adult height. In these days of high physical activity coupled with by and large lousy eating, plus previously unknown pressures on boys to be super-built, and on girls to be super-thin, full nutritional support may never have been more vital for young men and women than it is right now.

The adolescent years have always been a dramatic time for the body, but it's even more so in today's modern world with all the additional environmental, emotional and social stresses. Good nutrition can have an enormous impact not only on the physical health of teenagers, but also on their emotional, cognitive and psychological development as well. Some studies even go so far as to suggest that the nutritional levels of individuals as teenagers will dictate not only their general health in later years, but even have an impact on the overall success of their adult lives.
