A varied and balanced diet is fundamental for the optimum growth and development of children and teenagers and for them to have an adequate sports performance. The child that practices sports differs from the one that doesn’t in that he has greater energy consumption and should therefore have a diet in which carbohydrates are predominant in order to supply the necessary energy to his muscles. Fats and proteins must also be included but in lesser amounts. Currently, there are also recommendations about regular physical exercise in order to stay healthy and prevent medical conditions such as obesity.
The Mediterranean diet has properties that make it ideal for a sportsperson, whether junior, amateur or professional. It proposes rational food consumption from all the groups in the right amount.
