P = problems with unhealthy eating behaviors

B = benefits of a healthy diet

S = suggestions for healthy eating

 P= teens especially don't cook for themselves or don't know anything about nutrition which leads them into buying unhealthy fast food on the go.

 P= if you are busy doing something else while eating, it's harder for you to know when you are full which leads to overeating, to obesity, to health issues later in life

S= eat breakfast everyday with a mixture of carbohydrates, protein, and some healthy fat

S= when eating lunch, if you eat a sandwich try sticking with whole grain breads, lean meat and cheese, darker leafy greens, and hummus/or mustard replacing mayonaisse. 

S= try eating raw vegetables such as celery, brocolli, carrots, peas, or any other vegetable on the go. They're easy and healthy for on the go. 

S= for drinks, try to avoid sodas and juices, (they have way too much sugar in them). If you want juice, try fresh fruit instead for juice has additive sugars that aren't healthy for you and are empty calories. 

S=  athletes should drink milk for the calcium and Vitamin D to promote bone health 

P= energy drinks and drinks with caffeine are not good especially for teens because it makes your heart have to work harder than it needs to. It can also affect sleeping habits, as well as brain functions

S= Gatorade is good for athletes when working out because it adds lost electrolytes when sweating

S= Pack light before a game/practice then have decent dinner

P= sit down dinners are more healthy than on the go meals

Sophie Ferrone's Insights:

D- Dizziness and headache can occur when having a concussion

G- When almost fullly recovered, you should take exercising slowly such as first walking, then work your way up to jogging when you feel like it.

S- Many schools make students take an IMPACT test

D- Concussions are more severe for younger athletes than older athletes due to the brain still developing.

D- Due to young kids' muscles are not fully developed yet, their necks, backs, and brain aren't as strong as older athletes because they are still growing.

G- Doctors say that activity is a good thing for your brain

D- The more concussions you develop, the more your brain is easier to be able to forget things, such as remembering things, or even learning. As well as lack of or too much of sleeping/resting.

S- Definitely acquire physical activity to be a slow process from recovering after a concussion.
