Thank you for taking the time to post in the MyFitnessPal support center.
Currently, our program is designed for members who are 18 or older and is geared to their nutritional needs. Due to information found in our program as well as the nutritional guidelines, the program is not yet designed it to be easily modified to support the needs of younger members.
When you first create your profile, we base your daily goals on all the information asked for, i.e., your age, height, weight, gender, and activity level. We then calculate your goals based on all this information. For members under the age of 18, this information may vary. If the wrong age is entered in, this will project inaccurate calculations, which may cause potential issues.
We are looking into having a family version of the program in a future update. Our apologies we could not be of more help at this time. You may have success with another program designed specifically for the needs of teens, such as https://kurbo.com/
