Diet pills are just as dangerous as they are wildly popular. Phentermine, one of the most popular diet pills on the market, has been associated with heart palpitations and other negative side effects. The struggle for weight loss is so great, that teenagers ignore the warnings and suffer long term health effects.
The safest way to lose weight is to eat smaller portions, watch what you eat, adhere to good nutrition and increase physical exercise.
According to the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans put out by Nutrition.gov, the food groups include vegetables, fruits, grains, dairy, protein foods, and oils. Although vegetable intake among adults ages 18 or older is higher than that of adolescents, it is still below the recommended intake. (If you’re curious to know which vegetables are most popular, they are potatoes and tomatoes). Across the board, data shows that the average intake is always below the recommended weekly intake ranges, for almost all types of vegetables in almost all age groups and genders.
Nutrition.gov suggests strategies to help increase the amount of vegetables consumed. For example, include increasing the vegetable content of mixed dishes that have vegetables; choose a green salad or vegetable as a side dish; and incorporate vegetables into meals and snacks.
Children and healthy food colors
Children respond to color in their food. Instead of associating artificially flavored foods with color, help children associate healthy foods with color. As we know, fruits and vegetables come in a variety of colorful shades. The deep green hues of leafy vegetables can be complemented by vibrant red tomatoes. Desserts may display a rainbow of bright, attractive colors, such as in fruit salads and platters! There are plenty of great ideas for healthy dishes to develop fit eating habits!
