Soccer diet, soccer nutrition, soccer diets, soccer foods specific to soccer.
The amounts and types of food that soccer players eat has an impact on not only their practice and match performance but also on their growth and general health levels. This section is provided as a guide to help parents of players as well players themselves understand nutrition and its importance.
It is important that youth footballers (in fact all children and adults as well) get enough energy from their food intake to carry out day to day tasks as well as any sports activities. This can often mean that three meals a day is not enough and extra energy needs to be supplemented by eating snacks. The problem for most footballers is that they do not know what to eat for main meals and also what snacks to eat.
