Young athletes are always on the go. School, family, and sports eat up a lot of time. For parents and coaches, it can be a challenge to make sure kids are eating healthfully enough to perform at their best on and off the field. Fueling Young Athletes provides the help you need.

In this practical guide, Heather Mangieri--a sport dietitian and mother of three active kids--breaks down the nutrition needs of young athletes and explains what the latest research suggests. You'll analyze current eating habits and preferences and how and where these can be improved. You'll learn how healthier meals and snacks can equate to improved performance while still being convenient and appetizing.

Fueling Young Athletes addresses the issues that families and athletes most often face, such as late-night practices, inconvenient school lunchtimes, demanding tournament schedules and travel leagues, and lack of sleep. Best of all, you'll find a collection of easy recipes for smoothies and sport drinks, all with common ingredients and nutrition information.

Weight management, supplementation, fueling, hydration--it's all here. Fueling Young Athletes is practical and realistic. If you are a parent or coach, it's the one guide you should not be without.
