My Book on Fueling Young Athletes

Learn how to put a healthy nutrition plan into practice for your high school athlete.

In Fueling Young Athletes, Heather Mangieri — a sports dietitian and mother of three active adolescents — breaks down the nutrition needs of young athletes and explains what the latest research suggests. You’ll analyze current eating habits and preferences and how and where these can be improved. You’ll learn how healthier meals and snacks can equate to improved performance while still being convenient and appetizing.

Fueling Young Athletes addresses the issues that families and athletes most often face, such as late-night practices, inconvenient school lunchtimes, demanding tournament schedules and travel leagues, and lack of sleep. And, you’ll find a collection of easy recipes for smoothies and sports drinks!
