Maintaining a healthy diet during the teen years is an important early step toward a healthy life--especially for teenage girls, who are under enormous pressure to be model-thin.

Another large group of teen girls eat too little, just for keep in sharp. Choosing healthy snacks can help teen girls as they go through their teen years.

Low-fat Protein Snacks
Teenage girls need low-fat protein to enough calories and provide energy to continue growing. Better choices include turkey, lean chicken or fish. Roll up delicatessen turkey slices with a romaine lettuce leaf for a crunchy, healthy snack. Peanut butter also provides protein; spread it on a whole-wheat cracker or pita bread.

Dried Fruit Popcorn
Air-popped popcorn is a low-fat and low-calorie snack. Popcorn is also a good source of fiber, making it a light, nutritious after-school snack. For an extra dose of Vitamin C, add some dried fruit, such as raisins or cranberries, and skip the melted butter.

Fruits and Vegetables
Every day, girls between the ages of 14 and 18 need one and one-half cups of fruits, and two and one-half cups of vegetables, according to the U.S. government's food pyramid. Some girls will eat fruit such as apples or pineapples if it's in the refrigerator, cut up and ready to munch on. Buy a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables to have available. Have celery, carrots and sweet red peppers cleaned, cut up and in baggies for your teen girl to grab on the go.

Dairy Snacks
Teens, both boys and girls, need 1,200 milligrams of calcium daily. Girls typically don't consume enough dairy products to help their bones develop during their growing spurt. Teen girls' snacks should include sources of dairy products such as milk, yogurt and cheese. Provide fresh fruits to put with the yogurt, and leave the blender on the counter to encourage the teen girl to make smoothies for her afternoon http://www.21food.com/product/100804-p1/dairy-snacks.html. When buying orange juice, purchase the calcium-enriched variety, which is good in smoothies, too.

Drinks
Water is the number one healthy drink. However, sometimes your body craves more, especially when doing any physical activities. Avoid sports drinks that have a great deal of sugar and sodium. If you need to replenish vitamins and nutrients, drink chocolate milk. For a change from water, drink a vegetable juice or 100 percent fruit juice with no artificial additives.
