It is IMPERATIVE to begin the day with proper hydration and a nutrient dense breakfast.

Want to help your young athlete get that competitive edge? Be sure to fuel them with the most wholesome clean foods possible.  Both of my children are always bouncing around, love riding bikes, jumping rope and swimming, so that alone calls for good nutrition.  My daughter has been in ballet since the age of 2 and now, as she is just about to turn 8, she sees it as more of a sport and has recently talked about continuing on as a professional performer. 

As her mother and dietitian I am dedicated to supporting her in any way I can, especially on a nutritional level.  It is imperative that we, as parents, provide our children with the best, most nutrient dense foods possible; for school, play, health and sports.
