Greenville Health System encourages people of all ages to engage in a healthy lifestyle. It is especially important for teenagers to get enough exercise and have a nutritious diet. The teenage years are when lifelong health habits start to develop. Eating properly and exercising every day helps you maintain a healthy weight, keep a positive self-image and stay energized. Developing healthy habits early on also decreases the risk for many illnesses such as heart attack, stroke and cancer later in life.
This information is designed as a tool for teenagers to learn more about exercise and nutrition, how the body benefits, and the importance of making good decisions that lead to a healthy lifestyle.
