    A: In general, males have higher nutritional needs than females during the teen years. Males require more calories per day and have increased needs for zinc, vitamin A, E and some B vitamins. In contrast, females require more iron and folic acid. Males and females have similar needs for calcium and vitamin C, D and B-12. The differences relate to variations in growth rate and body composition. Males usually have a greater rate of growth for a longer period of time and require more nutrients for the development of bone, blood volume and lean tissue (muscle). In addition, males gain proportionately more muscle mass during puberty than females and since muscle tissue is more metabolically active, males have a higher metabolic rate. Of course, it is important to remember that there is a lot variation from teen to teen; for example, an active female basketball player who is still growing may have greater nutrient needs than an inactive 13-year-old boy. Nutritional needs for both male and female teenagers can usually be met by eating the recommended servings from the Food Guide Pyramid, with careful attention to getting enough calcium. If eating habits are uncertain, then a standard daily multivitamin and mineral supplement may be wise.
