Encourage your teen to eat three balanced meals a day, with fruits or vegetables as snacks.
The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases offers suggestions to help your child develop and maintain good eating habits and to prevent chaotic mealtimes in your home.
Learning a bit more about vitamins and minerals can help ensure your kids are on the right nutritional track.
It's not always easy to get your children to eat enough fruits and vegetables.
Better health for your teen could be as close as your breadbox. The more whole grains teenagers eat, the leaner they are and the less likely they are to develop diabetes.
