How to grow a champion

I have recently been asked about information on nutrition for young athletes. It would seem that a good breakfast and lunch is not enough.  Maybe it’s the Olympics?  How do you grow a champion?

Side by side with good nutrition for young athletes is the issue of sports injuries, and many a promising athlete or sports person has ended up sidelined because of overtraining and/or bad coaching plus the aforementioned good nutritional advice. Thankfully there is now more literature available on how to avoid these pitfalls and sustain a child or young adult through training and success.
