Comments:

My young athlete has developed increasingly challenging pickiness and doesn’t seem to understand the correlation between diet and performance (but he’s almost ten, so I’m not expecting miracles). This book helped to clarify my own thinking and has helped me develop strategies and find resources to help him understand that he can take control of his diet in healthy ways and not just restrictive ways.

Love this book! It is well written and full of useful information for every parent. Jill includes helpful suggestions for the holes in young athletes’ diets, pre-game/ post-game refueling. Her book also clears up some myths- such as carb loading for young athletes before games. My family will definitely benefit from the information In this book. Each parent should have a copy of Eat Like a Champion! Great for coaches too!
