Nutrition Tips for the Student Athlete

According to the “Go Out and Play: Youth Sports in America” survey, 69 percent of girls and 75 percent of boys currently participate in organized and team sports. Children participating in team sports receive several health benefits including improved physical fitness, reduced body fat levels, decreased risk for developing chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes, better bone health, increased self-esteem and emotional well-being. Nutrition plays a key role in athletic performance and recovery yet many student athletes show up to practice dehydrated and underfed. Performance suffers and chances for injury increase when young athletes don’t pay attention to fueling their bodies.
