Hello! I have a question for everyone...
Do you think that a teenager should be allow on MyFitnessPal?
I have a relative who wants to join but she is younger than 17. (Older than 13)
I want to make sure that this program is safe for a teenager like her.
This is just your opinion and i really appreciate the time you put into replying to this forum. ^^
Have a nice day =] smile

No. There is nothing stopping them from using it if they are smart enough not to say "HAI GAIZ I'M A TEENAGER LOLZ" but really I don't want them here. It's not a good idea.

People under 18 are minors.
They shouldn't be dieting without the supervision of a doctor and their parents to begin with.
