Any parent of a child athlete or dancer knows the dilemma of trying to protect your child’s health, while conforming to the advice of coaches, trainers, and others. How can you be sure you are doing the right thing, providing adequate nutrients for your child to sustain growth, and supporting the child in having a healthy body image.

Written by some of the leading experts in childhood sports nutrition, this is a reliable resource to help you hold your own, even when coaches are telling your child that they shouldn’t be drinking so much fluid (really dangerous advice) or telling your child to lose 20 pounds in the month before the start of football season (which will hurt his performance and could stunt his growth).

Key topics covered include fluid balance, the role of carbs, fat and protein in maintaining your child’s health, fitting in enough nourishment at the right times for over-scheduled kids, and supporting their attainment of a healthy weight. This book should be on the required reading list for all parents of child athletes and their children’s coaches. Order here.
