Sports nutrition is a broad interdisciplinary field that focuses on the science behind and application of proper nutrition during exercise.
Young athletes’ performance in sports depends heavily on nutrition, which also promotes healthy growth and development. To provide energy for development and activity, the right ratios of macronutrients, micronutrients, and fluids are necessary. Young athletes must learn what, when, and how to eat and drink before, during, and after action in order to maximise performance. For young athletes to grow properly and perform at their best, good sports nutrition is essential. Young athletes must learn which meals provide the most energy, when to consume them, how to eat while competing, and when and what to eat to refuel after exercise.
Supporting an athlete’s overall health and training requirements through nutrition is crucial.
A healthy diet gives a person the nutrients and energy they need to satisfy the demands of training and activity. It promotes recuperation in addition to assisting a person in performing at their best.
Athletes may want to think about:
they need to eat.
quantities and ratios of macronutrients
timing of meals and snacks vitamins and minerals for performance and recuperation hydration
An athlete’s performance can be enhanced by tailoring these factors to their body weight and composition, the amount of time they spend training, and the sport they participate in.
