Are you feeling less energetic lately? Suffering injury after injury?
Your diet could be to blame!
If your body is not fueled with the proper foods, your dancing and your health will experience a decline.
So, what should you be doing differently?
Active people need to fuel their bodies differently. Carbohydrates are often viewed as negative components of a diet. However, 50-60% of dancer’s diet should consist of carbohydrates.
WHERE CAN I FIND ‘GOOD’ CARBS?
These items can be consumed daily. Instead of sending your dancers from school to class with a granola bar- packed with sugar consider one of the options here:
Cup of Fruit
Carrots & Applesauce
Snacks such as these can be prepared in bulk for the week and portioned out to provide your dancer with more necessary nutrients throughout the day between meals!
