Sports Nutrition

Young Athletes are not like regular kids.

Do you have young athletes? Do they know WHAT and WHEN to eat to improve athletic performance? What nutrition habits are sabotaging their training? Nutrition. Hydration. Rest/Sleep. These are the necessary ingredients to ensure maximum energy levels, mental focus, injury prevention and overall performance.

Jacqueline Winkelmann, M.D., known to many as “Doctor Jacq,” is a Board-Certified Pediatrician at CHOC Children’s and CHOC Children’s at Mission Hospital, past Chief-of-Staff, Child Advocate, dedicated chef and mother of 2 young athletes. This gives her a unique understanding of how to create a realistic yet healthy lifestyle that fits into busy routines. Doctor Jacq teaches young athletes, parents and coaches to “Make the Healthier Choice the Easier Choice.”

What should Young Athletes be eating?

Let Doctor Jacq help your team understand the WHAT, WHEN and WHY of eating, drinking and resting for sports. Doctor Jacq’s talks are customized for YOUR team: age, gender, and sport specific. Doctor Jacq will give you the medical information your young athlete needs to be mentally sharp, energized, injury-free and performing his or her best, in a fun, easy and practical manner.
