A Good Diet For Teens?
Hello dokI, my 13-year-old student, every day I never eat breakfast and then during recess around 9 I just eat, but the food I eat is noodles, fried foods, and esteh. It’s my daily food, then because of organizational activities I usually just arrive at home at 18:00, and can only have dinner with rice and vegetables around 19:00.Usually my stomach does not have a problem but these days my stomach feels cramped like menstruation but I am not menstruating Is this bad huh, then is my eating pattern wrong?
Hello Alya! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Based on your story, your eating pattern is not healthy. If left unchecked, of course your digestive organs can be damaged. You need to pay attention again, your protein source seems still very lacking. In fact, protein is very important for growth and for your learning in school. Expand sources of protein, such as milk, beef, chicken, eggs, or fish. Try to consume animal protein at least 1 serving per day. Breakfast is very important for students like you. Breakfast can help concentrate to study at school. Avoid skipping breakfast. Try to get up early to have enough time for breakfast. At 9 o'clock, you can eat snacks, but you shouldn't just fry them up. Choose healthy snacks, like fruit or biscuits.
During the day, don't forget to go back for lunch. Arrange your food so that it contains carbohydrates, protein, and balanced fat. You can bring lunch from home so your lunch is healthier. In the afternoon, bring biscuits for your consumption as a break during the organization break. In the evening when he got home, immediately eat dinner. Avoid dinner only with rice and vegetables only. As a student who is still in the process of growth, you really need protein. The rice and vegetables you eat need to be supplemented with a protein source that I mentioned earlier. After eating, don't go to sleep right away. Wait about 1 hour before lying down and wait about 3 hours before going to bed at night. You can work on assignments and study while waiting for that time. To reduce pain in the stomach, avoid spicy, sour / oily, and oily (fried) foods. You also should not drink tea, soda, or coffee because it is also acidic. Remember to always adjust your diet regularly, always carry biscuits in a bag to prop up if it will be too late to eat. If you feel nauseous when eating, try to eat a little but more often, avoid eating at once much. If the pain is very annoying or does not improve, immediately see a doctor to be examined directly. Organization is very important for teenagers, but don't neglect your health.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
