The number of calories needed depends on physical size and expenditure of energy. It is however possible to give a range of calorie recommendations. For the average teenage girl the recommended daily allowance is 2200 calories, and for the average teenage boy 2500-3000 calories.

Caloric needs of adolescents are determined by gender and age. Children often need more calories than girls. Other relevant factors in determining energy requirements of a smaller size, body composition and activity level.

Remember that exercise is very important in the equation of how many calories are needed for normal growth and development, and also in any weight reduction program. Your teen’s daily calories should include a variety of foods in appropriate amounts to ensure proper nutrition.
