I had the pleasure of being a guest on Dr. Steve Silvestro’s Child Repair Guide  Podcast, where we discussed sports nutrition for young athletes. Some of the topics we talked about:

  • The foundation of sports nutrition for kids
  • At what activity level parents need to begin adapting their kids’ diet
  • What threshold of junk food is “okay”
  • The surprising nutrient that’s most important for your young athlete
  • The ideal diet for your athletic child—from days before an event, to the day of and for recovery
  • How to hydrate better
  • Healthy sources of carbs
  • Whether or not chocolate milk really is a good post-workout food
  • Sports drinks alternatives
  • The lowdown on supplements— Do your kids need them? Are there some you should avoid?
  • My thoughts on the problem with nutritional studies
  • What to do when your child constantly says: “I’m hungry!”
  • …and a whole lot more!

Feel free to ask questions or leave me a comment! Enjoy the end of your summer! And contact me if your team would like a sports nutrition talk! Private consults also available!
