My favorite analogy about nutrition is one that says, an athlete is like a lamborghini, premium fuel is required.  just like the car, the best food (fuel) choices are necessary for optimal on-field performance.

Post training nutrition focus is equally as important- what does your child need during the recovery process? As the burning of calories occurs, it is important to refuel with the right food. First and foremost- upon completion of a strenuous training session, it is imperative to ‘hydrate up’, so do not forget to drink water- before, during and after your kid’s workouts. After an intense training session, nourishing your athlete’s body with nutritious options is your goal, while reducing muscle soreness.
