Eat like a champion, performance nutrition for your young athlete, Jill Castle, MS, RDN, CDN - pbk

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
