Dietary needs of the young athlete
Foods and beverages marketed for “sports” are not the key to improve sports performance. Many sports foods and drinks, like energy bars are marketed to athletics, but most children do not require these things to meet their energy and nutrient needs. Children who eat a healthy well-balanced diet are most likely getting the energy and nutrients needed to perform well in sports.
Carbohydrates: Carbohydrates provide energy for the body. When you are choosing Carbohydrates, look for whole-grain foods like brown rice, whole-grain bread, pasta and cereal, and lots of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Protein helps build and repair muscles. Most children get plenty of protein from a balanced diet. Protein-rich foods include fish, lean meat and poultry, dairy products, beans and lentils, nuts, soy products, and nut butters.
Fat: Fat plays an important role in the body, as long as you eat the right amount. Good food sources of fats include avocado, nuts and seeds, nut butters, and plant oils like olive oil.
Hydration: It is important for young athletes to drink plenty of fluids. Dehydration can wipe out an athlete’s strength and coordination and may even lead to heat-related illness. Children must drink water or other fluids every 15 to 20 minutes during physical activity. It is also important to drink following activity to restore fluid lost through sweat. Sport drinks are an option, but plain water is usually best to keep children hydrated. Sport drinks are designed to provide energy in the form of sugar and replace electrolytes that are lost in sweat. Sport drinks are a good choice when children are sweating and active for more than an hour.
Feeding young athletics during and after events is important. The meal itself should not be very different from what they were eating during training or even the off-season. A meal three hours or more before activity should have plenty of carbohydrates, a moderate amount of protein and be low in fat. If a child must eat sooner than three hours before an event, serve a light snack like fruit, veggie juice, energy bar or even toast. Following the game or event, children should have a quick snack to replace the Carbohydrates, like milk. Once home, the athletics will be ready for a healthy balanced meal containing Carbohydrates, protein, and fat (chicken, salad, broccoli and rice). Remember, athletic performance may require a slightly enhanced diet, but it is always important to feed your child healthy meals and snacks no matter what the season
