Sport Nutrition

for Your Young Athlete

You have the power to give them healthy foods

& a healthy mindset towards nutrition

For parents, teachers & coaches

Sugar? Carbs? Vegetarian? Vegan? Protein? Fat?

As a parent or coach, you worry your young athlete isn’t getting enough of or the right types of food. You struggle to find the best foods & snacks for hectic training & competition schedules. You hear about alternative diets and wonder if these are right for your athlete.

As sport dietitians, we see injuries & mental health problems as a result of misguided nutrition. Performance suffers and young athletes grow up wandering down an unhealthy path. We have a better way to look at diet in sport that focuses on including instead of excluding foods.

How do you know your competitive youth is properly fuelling both body & mind?

Do you have conversations with your athlete about sport nutrition & health choices?

Do you want sport nutrition for your team, but don’t have the funds to hire an expert?

Parents, teachers & coaches

Krystal Merrells

With my own long history of Prolonged Concussion Symptoms, it is my mission to improve your quality of life through nutrition for the brain & mind. I became interested in sport nutrition through my own training and traveling for rock climbing, a sport I have loved since the moment I pulled on my first handhold at age 16. I developed inspiration to further work with youth & families working at CHEO and with a number of youth sports teams in soccer, rock climbing and hockey. I love creating engaging workshops that don’t just educate, but also entertain! I weave in storytelling for a unique experience, taking the nutrition science and transforming it into tales we can all tell.
