Nutritional Needs of the Adolescent and Adult

By Mary Howard RN

Recently my articles have focused on weight loss. In this article, I would like to clarify the nutritional needs of the growing adolescent and the adult. In some of my past articles we covered the nutritional requirements of pregnancy and childhood we’ll make this article expand from there and talk about the nutritional requirements of adolescents, adults and elderly. There are many of you that suffer health conditions that debilitate your body and pull hard on your energy stores.
