If you want to know about nutrition for kids and what and how to feed your children to ensure good health, then this should be your bible!
With ever increasing awareness being made about what we are eating and drinking, it can be hard to know where to start when making changes to our diets. Nutrition for children is especially important so Anita Bean has written Kids’ Food for Fitness, a comprehensive guide to food and nutrition for kids aged 5 to 16 years old.
Anita, a fully qualified sports nutritionist, offers practical advice for parents, teachers and coaches about fuelling children for sport and everyday activities. Handy questionnaires and the food pyramid for children help you to determine what you need to change while various recipes and menu plans (designed by age group) show you how to incorporate healthy food for kids into everyday life.
The sections in Kids’ Food for Fitness cover what influences what children eat, advice about food labels, help for overweight and underweight or fussy children and information on eating disorders. The chapters dedicated to eating and drinking for action are especially useful for sports professionals or teachers working with children.
Detailed nutritional breakdowns for protein, carbs, fat and vitamins and minerals help you to understand what you are feeding children and how it can affect their energy levels, concentration and overall health.
Essential reading for all parents and coaches of active children. Whether they're playing in the park or training for sport, your child's performance, growth and development depends on eating the right foods.
