Here’s a great piece from The Guardian about how we can improve nutrition in adolescent girls around the world: http://goo.gl/jHC9LT One great idea is to encourage girls to play sports because there is evidence that doing so can empower girls, improve their self-esteem and challenge gender steroetypes. When girls know their worth and value, they take better care of themselves and rise to new heights. Early intervention, keeping girls in school and providing diverse diets are some of the other call to actions laid out in this piece.
