The Nutritional Athletic Edge

Do you feel your young athletes are not performing at their peak during practices or games?  Do you watch as toward the end of a game they 'fizzle out' of energy? 

They may be missing the most important gear for the game, proper nutrition and hydration!  

Clinically based evidence has shown, young athletes' consuming the proper nutrition/hydration intake will optimize their performance and maximize their athletic potential. 

Parents (and coaches) shouting from the sidelines to "run faster, jump higher, throw harder" cannot make up for the athlete not receiving the proper energy balance to allow them to unlock their full potential.

NUTRITION CAN!

Emily Hammon RD LD N 
Certified Youth Nutrition Specialist

Schooled locally in St Louis, MO, I completed my didactic internship through Washington University and Barnes Jewish College of Nursing and Allied Health program in 2004. I have since obtained my licensure in both Missouri and Illinois working the last 18years as a Clinical Registered Dietitian.  My passion grew for youth sports nutrition as I researched into how to improve my own son's performance during practice, game days and recovery. Realizing that proper nutrition bridges the gap between ability and optimized performance. Feeling the need to educate other youth athletes, I acquired my Certification as Youth Nutrition Specialist. I look forward to helping your young athlete(s) reach his/her full potential.
