Weight-conscious teenage girls are not eating enough calories for their age group. Over one third of 13 to 18-year-old girls in the UK are on diets or have dieted recently, according to a new survey. 45% eat less than 1,200 calories a day — when the recommended intake for a person in that age range is 2,110 calories. And it's not just the girls who are undernourished: 14% of boys admitted to dieting and 25% ate fewer than 800 calories a day. Sigh! What ever happened to delicious after-school snacks? We were all about Oreos and milk. [The Independent]
