Sport Nutrition for Young Athletes
"Nutrition is an important part of sport performance for young athletes, in addition to allowing for optimal growth and development. Macronutrients, micronutrients and fluids in the proper amounts are essential to provide energy for growth and activity. To optimize performance, young athletes need to learn what, when and how to eat and drink before, during and after activity."
"One of the trickiest things to manage is meal planning around athletic events. The timing of meals is very important and needs to be individualized."
