I never used to really pay much attention to kids and their fitness levels or realize the importance of it. It is easy to say kids are kids and they shouldn’t have to worry about much. I mean they can eat candy, stay up late, and do lots of other things and the easy excuse is because they are kids, not much more is needed right?
We are now full into the spring sport season with summer right around the corner. Athletes are busily applying their craft in the field while parents are coordinating carpool schedules to practice, buying the appropriate equipment and tending to injuries caused by competitive play. This does not leave a lot of time for either party to focus on two of the most important aspects of competitive sport: nutrition and hydration.
