Eat to win! Practice is only part of a winning sports strategy. Whole foods have to be part of the playbook to increase energy, endurance, and focus, both on and off the field. What to eat and when to eat, pre-game, during, and afterward? How much fluid do you need to be hydrated? What to eat when you’re on the road? These are essential tips for young athletes, competing on a demanding schedule and eating on the run.

In this expanded second edition, simple nutritional lessons are organized into 10 Essential Eating Guidelines and recipes for cooking with whole grains and vegetables. These recipes and eating tips offer a gateway for young players, parents, and coaches to improve performance and establish lifelong eating habits.
