Young athletes often want to try sport supplements and energy drinks that promise to enhance sport performance.
Remind your child that most of these products do not significantly improve performance and that some are dangerous.
As an alternative to using sport supplements, encourage your child to train hard, eat well and get enough rest. These are tried and true solutions that athletes of all ages can use to perform at their best.
When it comes to sports, highly active kids have special needs. Help your child perform at his or her best during sport by making sure water is always available, providing healthy pre-exercise meals and snacks and discouraging sport supplements and energy drinks.
