On this week’s episode, Janet and Emily are looking at how sugar and a bad diet effect mental health in teenagers. With teenagers already going through so much with hormone changes and other adjustments, the high consumption of sugar is not helping. Between being targeted by marketing companies for advertisements and the peer pressure they face in social situations and gatherings – teenagers are consuming more sugar than any age group. Janet and Emily discuss how to help this situation as parents, but also allowing your teens to be independent and make their own food choices.

Rosa asks, “Hello ladies – Recently I’ve decided to cut out caffeine. I usually drink black tea but will now be switching to herbal teas. Can you recommend any herbal teas with great taste and no caffeine?”
Pam asks, “Hi Janet and Emily – I have two twin girls who both just turned 15. Their attitudes towards me seem to be getting worse and worse. With dad they’re fine, and will do what is asked but they do not want to listen to me or be involved with me at all – any advice for daughters this age? Should I just wait out the attitudes and not let it get to me? Thanks in advance, ladies!”
