Proper nutrition forms the foundation upon which sports performance is built. Without a good nutrition program, physical and mental abilities of an athlete will decline. Everything from the level of hydration to the timing of carbohydrate intake drastically affect performance.
Sports nutrition is important for athletes of all ages, including children as young as 7 years old. Even at this age, proper nutrition helps to increase energy levels, manage weight, improve concentration, develop body composition and growth, prevent injury, and enhance recovery.
