The Eatwell Plate

Oli Orange
Good nutrition is important for health growth and development as well as sporting performance.

Most active children just need to eat well and stay hydrated.

Our research has shown that there is confusion amongst players, parents and coaches about the types of foods, timings of meals and the drinks that children should intake for their activity.

It can be difficult to assess calorie intake and whilst food packaging now contains ingredients labelling, the information provided here and on the ‘Good Nutrition for Active Children™’ training course contains up to date advice.


Research has shown that children eat healthier when they regularly share meals with their families. They can also have a positive influence on the family’s food and shopping habits.
