As children get older, they start making their own decisions about many things that are important to them. They select what they wear every day, listen to music that they like, and spend time with friends that they choose. This booklet provides small and doable steps that help teens get healthier.
How much physical activity do you get? As a teenager, physical activity is important, not just for your future health, but for looking and feeling your best now. This quiz will help you figure out if you are active enough whether it is through a formal exercise program or fun activities.

Team Nutrition provides a number of free materials that connect nutrition education to school and child care gardens. We also offer evidence-based curricula that educators can use to integrate garden-based nutrition education lessons into core educational subjects such as math, English language arts, and science. From small pots and container gardens to full garden plots, we have materials that can fit your needs and resources. Schools, summer sites, and child care (centers, homes, and sponsors) that participate in USDA’s Child Nutrition Programs may request free printed copies of many of these materials.
