Sunny Side Up Nutrition

Anna Lutz and Elizabeth Davenport have a conversation with Rachel Manor, a Registered Dietitian and Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics.

They discuss:

  • How diet culture shows up in sports.
  • The most important things for parents to understand about kids & teens who are involved in sport (hint: it has a lot to do with eating enough).
  • Barriers to adequate fueling specifically for athletes.
  • Why athletes are at a higher risk for developing disordered eating behaviors and/or eating disorders
  • Things coaches, parents, and trainers can do to support athletes in a protective way.
