Senior Adam Steffes said his breakfast consists of Carnation instant breakfast and a glass of milk. He eats the school's lunch everyday, and his mother usually cooks a homemade dinner.
On a different side of the dice, Sophomore Dustin Mennenoh said “I don’t eat breakfast, it’s a waste of time. I get the school lunch with extra milk and double entrée, and dinner is usually some kind of meat.”
Doctors recommend teens eat a minimum of 2-3 servings of fruit and vegetables, one source of protein per day, 3-4 servings of dairy per day, and 6-7 servings of grain per day. The exact portions vary depending on several factors: male or female, weight, daily exercise, allergies, etc. But do teens really eat the suggested portions of each category daily? Look around at the teens in your area to find out for sure.
