The tween years kick off the period of the most accelerated change in a person's life, with the exception of infancy.

Boys and girls both hit their growth spurt during this time. They need the nourishment, so it's no surprise that the kitchen is a favorite hot spot for tweens after school. Snacking isn't just about holding them over for dinner; for some tweens, it's also about learning how to be creative with foods and cooking utensils. Stock your pantry and fridge with nutritious, fresh, whole foods and consider keeping sugary, salty and processed goods like chips, cookies or frozen snacks to a minimum. This way, your tween will learn how to prepare good things to eat and won't turn to sodium-laden, unhealthy options for a quick fix.
