The Importance of Protein in Youth Athletes

Here's a quick reminder as to why you should be getting some form of protein at each meal.

It's important to make sure you're consuming enough protein throughout the day at each meal time to support recovery and normal development as it cannot be stored in the body like carbs and fats can.

Pictured are some dairy products that have high amounts of protein and might be a better substitute than what you're currently having.

It's great to see more foods with a higher protein content. Yes this might be a marketing ploy, but adequate consumption is critical for all stages of our lives.

These include:

  • Muscle development
  • Sport performance/recovery
  • Hormones
  • Immunity
  • Fight age-related muscle loss
  • Improve recovery from injury
  • Assist in weight-loss/management
  • Repair cells and create new ones

If you want to improve your sporting performance, get in touch.
