RECIPES: Fruit Dipping, Apple-Hazelnut Salad In A Cup, Salsa Fresca, Strawberry Banana Cooler, Fruit Slushy in a Can

A healthy body needs nutrients for growth, development and energy but getting tweens to eat the proper foods can be a struggle.
Designed for kids 9-13 years old, the website Bam! Body and Mind, at bam.gov/sub_foodnutrition/index.html , provides information needed for children and their parents to help make healthy lifestyle choices.
( http://www.bam.gov/sub_foodnutrition/index.html )
This Centers for Disease Control and Prevention site, offers games to help tweens choose the right foods in the cafeteria, answers questions about food and nutrition and provides fun and easy-to-make recipes for the whole family.
( www.cdc.gov/nutrition/ )

Have you wondered about how much food a 9-13 year old should eat? This site breaks down how many fruits, vegetables, grains, protein, dairy and fats needed for this group.
A more active child in the target age range, should try to eat 2 cups of fruits, 3 cups of veggies, 7 ounces of whole grains, 6 ounces of protein, 3 cups of low-fat milk and 6 teaspoons of fats or oils each day. A less active 9-13 year old would need slightly less.
( www.bam.gov/sub_foodnutrition/diningdecisions_questions.html )
Confused on how foods measure up in cups, ounces and teaspoons? The site has a fun “count decoder” to help. For example, 1 ounce of grain is counted as a slice of whole grain bread, packet of instant oatmeal or 1 cup cooked rice.

The following is just a sample of the delicious and nutritious recipes located in the Cool Treats section, http://bam.gov/sub_foodnutriton/cool treats_alone.html.
