Kids have their own nutritional needs--especially athletic kids. Yet most young athletes aren't eating properly to compete. Even if they're on a "healthy" diet, it's often supplemented by convenient but empty calories that are actually slowing them down.

Fortunately, with the right nutrition, young athletes can increase their energy, bolster their motivation, gain muscle mass, overcome fatigue, and improve their performance. Eat Like a Champion will help their parents:

Tailor diets for training, competition, and even off-season * Find the best food options, whether at home or on the go * Address counterproductive or unhealthy eating patterns * Understand where supplements, sports drinks, and performance-enhancing substances do--and don't--fit in * And more

It took a registered dietitian who specializes in child and adolescent nutrition to write a book as focused and informative as this--complete with charts, recipes, and practical meal and snack ideas that can help athletic youngsters eat to win. It's a must-read for every parent of active kids ages eight through eighteen.

I've been looking for a book to explain the nutritional needs of my two teenage athletes for so long. This book is a practical guide to understanding their nutritional needs; including protein, hydration and carbohydrates. It explains the protein supplement debate and gives practical advice. This was a fantastic book for any parent of pre-teen and teenage athletes.
