All children who participate in the sport of swimming can greatly benefit from sports nutrition. As swimming is based on strength, power, endurance and agility, a swimmer can eat a tailored diet based on their training and competition requirements.
As well as the benefits an athlete will enjoy from improving their sports nutrition habits, adolescence is also a great time to introduce and reinforce good overall nutritional habits for the future years. Nutrition for Swimmers is an ebook that can be used as a guide for families on what to eat when and specifically focuses on eating guidelines around swimming training and competition programs.
