Sophie Jamieson: Food for Sport

Session Info:

The adolescent athlete asks their body to do many things: daily training and competition and everyday growth and development.
Eating patterns must meet the needs for sporting success with the nutritional considerations for healthy growth and development.

These days there are so many people who tell you what to eat – bloggers, magazines, books, websites, sponsors of athletes, friends and family. Even the supermarket or chemist can be full of products such as protein shakes claiming to improve your health.
