Young athletes need nutritional guidance from professionals with specialized knowledge of the unique requirements of active children. An inadequate diet can result in nutrient deficiencies that negatively affect growth, development, and performance.
Proper intake of macronutrients, micronutrients, and fluids is discussed to equip nutrition professionals with evidenced-based information about unique nutritional needs. Critical topics such as eating disorders, dietary supplements, body composition, and weight control are covered. The course provides evidenced-based information on how to work effectively with young athletes and their parents for a nutrition program which maximizes performance while protecting children.
