BALTIMORE - You probably don't want your adolescent daughter on a diet, but if you want her to stay at a healthy weight, it seems the dash diet is the way to go.
This particular diet is touted as a way to reduce high blood pressure in adults, but it's also great for young girls.
The diet emphasizes higher consumption of low-fat dairy products; fish, chicken and lean meats; and nuts, fruits, whole grains, and vegetables.
Doctors say one benefit for young people who follow the dash diet will be in better overall health as they age.
