Adoiescence is a period of rapid growth; upto 45 percent of skeletal growth takes place and 15 to 25 percent of adult height is achieved during adolescence.

It is a timely period for the adoption and consolidation of sound dietary habits. Many habits acquired during adolescence will last a lifetime.
