Adolescents can be really picky eaters which may, in turn, impact their health. Why? Because lack of nutrients like vitamins, fibre and minerals in your diet would take away the essential nourishment which your body needs.
As per FSSAI (Food Safety and Standards Authority of India), eating balanced meals, drinking plenty of water, avoiding foods high in sugar, salt and oil and consuming boiled or baked foods instead of fried foods is good for one’s health.
