The SparkPeople Solution for Teens

We're excited to announce the newest addition to the SparkPeople family of websites:!

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 are dealing with many of the same weight and health issues as adults. They need (and want) information about health and fitness—that's where SparkTeens comes in.

A modified version of, SparkTeens is the only online diet and fitness program geared towards teenagers, AND the first healthy living Community for teens. At SparkTeens, 13- to 17-year-old members will get the same customized tools that SparkPeople members use, but with some modifications to meet their unique needs. Also, the SparkTeens Community is separate from SparkPeople, to enhance their safety and allow them to interact with others like them.

We hope that SparkTeens members will learn to develop healthy habits that last a lifetime, and use what they learn to set and reach goals in other areas of life too.

Whether the teenagers in your life want to become more active, learn to make healthy food choices or improve their fitness levels, SparkTeens' tools and support are here to help them succeed—so let them know about it! Spread the Spark to the teens in your life today so they can enjoy a healthier tomorrow. Don't forget to share with high school teachers and coaches, your family doctor, and anyone else who cares about the health or our nation's teens!
