New Book Shows Tech-Savvy Teens How to Eat Well

Below you’ll find a guest post from Stefani Pappas, a nutrition/family studies student at The Pennsylvania State University, Schreyer Honors College, whom I had the pleasure to meet this past Summer. After I met this smart, motivated young woman who LOVES nutrition, I thought, who better than her to review a brand new book that recently landed on my desk—The Teen Eating Manifesto





The transition into college or living on your own can be stressful, and it’s during such times that teens tend to put health on the back-burner. Fortunately, to the rescue comes The Teen Eating Manifesto: The Ten Essential Steps to Losing Weight, Looking Great and Getting Healthy by registered dietitian Lisa Stollman.

In this nutrition bible for teens, Stollman effectively shares many valuable nutrition secrets, such as how to be beverage savvy and how to satisfy a sweet tooth. The book effectively educates teens about the benefits of a nutritious diet and active lifestyle, and at the same time, helps them become nutrition savvy and make practical, doable changes in their day-to-day food and fitness behaviors that can help them look and feel better.

What I find particularly helpful are the sample meal plans, delicious recipes, and exercise tips. All of these components make the book easy to personalize to meet individual nutrition needs.

Aside from addressing our daily lives, Stollman also shares secrets for how to keep health a priority during tricky situations such as when we eat out, go to a party, and go on vacation.

In The Teen Eating Manifesto, Stollman also shares the latest in nutrition technology by giving readers access to countless health apps and websites. Because teens are so tech-savvy, they’re sure to love all the great technological tools that Stollman recommends, including apps that help you track your calories, plan your workouts, or navigate the supermarket.

I think of this book as the college student’s healthy living bible. It’s an educational, easy to read book that is sure to help teens eat and live more healthfully now and in years to come.
