As a parent or guardian, we are sure you feel concerned about what your child will be doing online, and we are too. SparkTeens.com was created as a resource for 13- to 17-year-olds. We try to offer age-appropriate information and resources about health, nutrition, fitness and weight management, and a positive community where teens can connect with and support one another as they reach their goals. However, not every teen is ready to deal with these issues at the same age. If your teen is younger than 13 or you think he or she is not ready to interact online with older teenagers (at whatever age) you should direct him or her to a website other than SparkTeens.com.|
SparkTeens is the newest addition to the SparkPeople family of websites, which also includes the award-winning SparkPeople.com and BabyFit.com. SparkPeople's mission is to help millions of people get healthy and reach their goals by providing resources and tools completely free of charge. While our other websites enforce a strict age policy (for adults 18 and over), we realize that teens today need (and want) information about health and fitness—that's where SparkTeens comes in.
SparkTeens offers many of the same innovative tools as its parent site, SparkPeople.com. However, the tools and content found here have been adapted and modified so that they meet the needs and interests of teenagers. Whether your child wants to become more active, learn to make healthy food choices or improve his or her fitness level, SparkTeens' tools and support are here to help people succeed.
There are countless things your teen can do on this site to reach his or her health, fitness and nutrition goals, including:
