Nutrition for Football

A Great Solution for COVID Concerns

With many schools now mandating all athletes bring their own food to practice or parents proactively monitoring what their child is eating while on school grounds during this pandemic, our Fuel PACs provide both a safe and convenient alternative to team communal meals or food prepared on-location. Our boxed nutrition kits provide prepared ready-to-eat whole food snacks & beverage that address several important needs during this era of COVID, including:

  • Pre-packaged products eliminate contamination
  • No person-to-person or person-to-product contact from on-site preparation or sharing
  • Shipped directly to your door
  • All our products are high quality food & beverages, helping to keep the immune system strong

The Training Demands of Youth Football

Football is a game of power and speed that needs to maintained over an extended period of time. The more power and speed you have…and the longer you can maintain it, the higher you perform and the more you win.  Guided, sport-specific, whole food nutrition has been proven to improve performance on the field at all levels, no matter if its youth football, high school, college or the pros.

Regardless if you're a lineman or skill position player, incorporating the right whole food nutrition products that meet your individual needs and performance demands can have a significant impact on your game. At the most basic level, training while consuming proper nutrition fuel will help you keep your body in peak performance well into the 4th quarter.

The Importance of Nutrition on Football Performance

Beyond a focused, football-specific training program that concentrates on a strong base position, tackling drills, throwing, catching, speed and agility, the single most important aspect to incorporate into a young football players’ preparation and performance is a purpose-based, football-specific nutrition plan.

Every young athlete striving to improve on-the-field performance (as well as their parents) needs to understand the importance of full body health. One of the biggest challenges is to know what to eat and drink and when to actually eat and drink those products. By providing young football players with the tools for proper nutrition, we know performance will not only improve today, but overall quality of life and health down the road will improve dramatically as an understanding of good nutrition habits are formed.
