Youth Golf Nutrition
Junior golf requires strength, endurance and concentration. Junior golf is an excellent vehicle for motivating children to eat properly for winning performance
1. Know their needs. Children have special nutritional needs. For example, they characteristically need more protein than adults to support their growing muscles. Additionally, avoid being too quick to restrict fats. While low-fat diets are important for adults, parents occasionally exaggerate low-fat foods for their youth athletes.
2. Fuel young athletes. Active young athletes need at least 3,000 calories a day. They should be consuming healthful foods regularly, above all during sports and exercise. Monitor iron. Adolescent athletes are at increased risk for iron deficiency because of their growth, and because exercise depletes iron levels.
3. Stress calcium, which is important to prevent stress fractures. Calcium intake reported by adolescents is often well below the Recommended Dietary Allowance.
4. Be assiduous about fluids. Adequate fluid intake is an extremely important aspect of proper sports nutrition.
· Fuel athlete's unsaturated fats, which are found in foods such as nuts, avocados and olive oil. Unsaturated fats are the good fats that fuel young athletes for the long run.
· Give added concentration to girls' diets. Girls need special nutritional monitoring, especially for iron and calcium needs.
· Develop strategies for convenient eating. For example, have athletes pack non-perishable snacks in their sports bags and always bring sufficient foods and fluids to competitions and practices.
*Theses are suggestions and always check with your family physician before making decision regarding your Child's nutrition.
