Ideally, adolescents should eat seven servings daily. Fruits and vegetables can be fresh, frozen, canned, or dried. Whole grains contain vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that are important for a teen's health and growth. Today, many foods such as white bread and white rice are made with refined grains, which are low in fiber and other nutrients found naturally in grains. Instead, it's best to eat a variety of whole grain foods. Ideas include: Food Serving Size Whole grain bread 1 slice Whole grain pasta 1/2 cup Brown rice 1/2 cup Foods made with bulgur (cracked wheat) such as tabouli salad 1 cup Some ready-made whole grain breakfast cereals 1/2 cup Whole barley, which can be added to soups Check the Nutrition Facts labels to choose whole grain foods that contain at least 10 percent Daily Value of fiber and are low in saturated fat, trans fat, sugars, and sodium (salt).
