It’s hard enough keeping up with all the nutritional needs for kids-not to mention actually getting them to actually eat many of these foods. But with athletic kids, there’s even more to pay attention to! So the unfortunate fact is, most young athletes are not eating properly to compete-too many convenient but empty calories that are actually doing them more harm than good.

As a result, these young athletes are losing energy when they should be increasing it, feeling deterred when they should be motivated, and actually decreasing muscle mass when they need it more than ever. Fortunately, with the right nutrition, young athletes can increase their energy, bolster their motivation, gain muscle mass, overcome fatigue, and improve their performance.

But how can a parent begin to get their athlete on the right track? Eat Like a Champion, written by a registered dietitian who specializes in child and adolescent nutrition, is the must-read resource for every parent of active kids ages eight through eighteen.

NATIONAL BESTSELLERA hockey life like no other. A hockey book like no other. Scotty Bowman is recognized as the best coach in hockey history, and one of the greatest coaches in all of sports. He won more games and more Stanley Cups than anyone else.

Remarkably, despite all the changes in hockey, he coached at the very top for more than four decades, his first Cup win and his last an astonishing thirty-nine years apart. Yet perhaps most uniquely, different from anyone else who has ever lived or ever will again, he has experienced the best of hockey continuously since he was fourteen years old.

With his precious standing room pass to the Montreal Forum, he saw “Rocket” Richard play at his peak every Saturday night. He saw Gordie Howe as a seventeen-year-old just starting out. He scouted Bobby Orr as a thirteen-year-old in Parry Sound, Ontario.

He coached Guy Lafleur and Mario Lemieux. He coached against Wayne Gretzky. For the past decade, as an advisor for the Chicago Blackhawks, he has watched Sidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin, and Connor McDavid. He has seen it all up close.
