What You’ll Hear in Today’s 15-Minute Huddle:
Today’s Topic: I’m joined by Jill Castle, a pediatric nutritionist with over 27 years of working with kids and families.
Jill shares why she became a nutritionist and how her active kids influenced her sports nutrition focus.
We talk about how sports nutrition has changed and where it’s headed.
Jill discusses how we got off-track in sports nutrition by rewarding physical activity with a treat instead of fueling for recovery.
We talk about how food marketers target sports parents and what we can do to avoid the trap.
Jill explains the over/under rule is and how to use it.
We discuss her book, Eat Like A Champion and what to expect from it.
JILL CASTLE MS, RDN, CDN, is a registered dietitian and America’s childhood nutrition expert. A contributor to SportingKid magazine, a representative to the Youth Sports Safety Alliance, and the mother of four young athletes, she writes about sports nutrition for websites and sports organizations.
