"Healthy aging or healthy aging should be prepared since young.'s Health should always come first, perhaps now as a teenager has not felt the effects too diligent exercise. Later when it starts aging will be felt, do not delay," said Prof. Dr.. Sri Moertiningsih Adioetomo, or familiarly called Prof.Tuning.
As a teenager, it's good to eat more nutritious foods, such as vegetables and fruits. Based on data Riskesdas in 2007, 93.6 percent of Indonesia's population over the age of 10 years have not been eating vegetables and fruits as suggested. While the consumption of vegetables and fruits is recommended at least 5 servings per day for 7 days a week.
In addition to meeting the nutritional needs by adjusting the diet, teenagers should also perform physical activity. Data Riskesdas of 2007 states that 48.2 percent of Indonesia's population over the age of 10 years less physical activity. Recommended physical activity is at least 150 minutes per week. Not just the usual day-to-day activities, but provide a special time for the sport.
Also suggested early on to reduce the consumption of sugar, salt, lard (fat), and excessive grain. If necessary, teens can also start eating herbs regularly.
"Equally important is exercise. Goods healthy is the key for everyone. Teenagers today it is often lazy sport, when you're new parents feel there is weakness in the muscles and bones because it is rarely driven," said Prof. Tuning.
If parents really want to have a future with a healthy body condition, then the healthy habits should also be done as a teenager. But unfortunately, especially in urban living conditions today make the residents do not live a healthy life. This should get more attention and immediately made changes in order to stay healthy old age.
