Health Tip: Nutritional Needs for Your Teen

(HealthDay News) — Teens typically have a significant increase in appetite around the age of 10 in girls and 12 in boys, the American Academy of Pediatrics says.

During adolescence, boys require an average of 2,800 calories per day and girls an average of 2,200 calories per day. Hunger typically starts to subside once teens stop growing, the academy adds.

But taller teens and those who play sports may require more calories into late adolescense, the doctor’s group says.
