The Importance of Nutrition for Kids Involved in Sports

Health drinks for kids are as important as any other food being consumed by them.

Irrespective of the kid's interest in sports, they should be made a part of their regular

diet and given to the kids without fail.

Consuming the right amount of foods and drinks is important for everyone. But, those

who actively participate in sports activities on a regular basis need to be aware of what

can affect their performance. Athletes for example, may need more calories throughout

the day compared to a non-athlete. Kids, taking part in sports activities on a regular

basis should be given a complete and balanced diet including protein, vitamins, calcium

and other important nutrients.

Sports performance and energy

Fats, carbohydrates and proteins, all provide the body with fuel to maintain energy.

Muscles use carbohydrates as the primary source of energy and adequate

carbohydrate intake is essential for preventing muscle fatigue. While fat intake should

be monitored, it is not recommended that you completely remove it from your diet. Fats

provide the energy to last long during workouts, especially for over one hour workout

sessions. A good source of energy including all these nutrients are healthy sports

drinks. They are a perfect blend of nutrients especially for kids and make it possible

for them to achieve good health necessary for a healthy and active body.

Giving 2 glasses of milk to growing kids on a regular basis is a good habit but adding to

it sports drinks for kids is even better. Although there is no shortcut for success and

hard work is the only key, health drinks added to the milk glass provide them with the

stamina and patience to stand undefeated on the field. It is important to choose wisely

as to which drink you would like to give your kids. According to a study, a good health

drink enriched with all the nutrients will take up to 120 days in building a significantly

better endurance in kids compared to other non-fortified drinks.

Let’s delve into the key nutrients that are essential and help you go the extra mile.

Iron and Vitamin C

They help in releasing the energy from food which is efficient for cell performance. Not

only this, they are also essential for blood health, optimizing how much oxygen the

blood can carry and thus, essential for increasing the stamina.

Vitamin A, Copper and Zinc

They are responsible for helping the cells protect from damage caused by oxidative stress.

Vitamin D, Calcium and Protein

These nutrients are responsible for optimal bone and muscle health. They help keep you strong

and fit.

A very frequently asked question that comes up is whether such drinks should be a part of kids’

diet who play sports or are these drinks for every growing kid. The answer to this is that most of

the essential vitamins and minerals that are present in these drinks help improve metabolism

and the status of various vitamins which are known to help in the oxygen utilisation of the body.

Therefore, it is recommended that health nutrition drinks should be made a regular part of

kid's diet irrespective of their participation in sports.
