If you have a young athlete, you are aware of both the physical demands sports play on their bodies and the difficulty it can be to explain how to properly fuel and hydrate for these sports. Inundated with non-nutritious snacks and drinks, trying to get your child to eat in order to better prepare them for their physical activity (and trying to set better eating habits for years to come) is a challenge!
This weekly series will change all that! Designed with both the student and their parent/guardian in mind, each session will break down how to eat to fuel your body, how stay hydrated, and more! And the final session will include a Q&A session with a Registered Dietitian!
These sessions are for BOTH the student and their guardian, so please ensure both can make each session.
In our first session, we will discuss what it means to fuel our bodies properly, what a nutritious diet for your student athlete’s age looks like, and try out some different food options to implement into their diets! Once we know what it means to properly fuel our bodies, we’ll put that knowledge into action by learning what a nutritious and sound plate should look like at each meal, as well as how moderation will become our new favorite word!
