Sports Nutrition

Atlantic Sports Health: Sports NutritionNothing is more important to your child's well-being and ability to perform than good nutrition. All children need to eat balanced meals and have a healthy diet, but that balance may change if your child is on a sports team or working out regularly. The right mix of foods is necessary to support higher levels of activity. For example, kids who are involved in strenuous endurance sports like cross-country running or competitive swimming may need to consume more food to keep up with their increased energy demands.

Eating specific foods helps the young athlete maintain desirable body weight, stay physically fit and establish optimum nerve-muscle reflexes. Without a targeted diet, even physical conditioning and expert coaching aren't enough to enable a young athlete to do their best on or off the field. At Atlantic Sports Health, a sports dietician can help develop an individualized plan to meet the particular needs and goals of your child. Good nutrition must be a key part of your child's training program.
