New Canaan resident and childhood nutrition expert Jill Castle has published her second book, Eat Like A Champion: Performance Nutrition for Your Young Athlete, a sports nutrition resource for young athletes aged 8 to 18 and their parents.
Eat Like a Champion showcases what young athletes need to eat, from calories, carbs and protein to meals, snacks and hydration. It answers the most common questions of youth sports nutrition such as: What should my athlete eat before competition? What should be eaten after a hard workout? Which supplements are okay and not okay to use? And, it tackles the tough issues of weight problems, medical conditions, and navigating the food environment in youth sports.
“Who could be better equipped to offer helpful nutrition advice to parents of young athletes than a registered sports dietitian who has raised four active kids?” sports nutritionist Dr. Nancy Clark said of Castle’s book. “In Eat Like a Champion, Jill serves easily digested, practical information to guide parents and coaches in helping their young athletes to eat like champions.”
Eat Like a Champion is available on Amazon and in bookstores.
