Nutrition for Kids and Teens


RBUBA understands that providing balanced meals can make a big difference in the overall health and well-being of your child. Good nutrition fuels kids for school, family time, and competitive contests. When they consume the right balance of calories and nutrients for their growing bodies, they’ll feel better and have more energy.  Make meals a colorful event. Serve up vegetables and fruits, whole grains and healthy proteins. Enjoy family meals together and involve your child in the planning and preparation. When you make healthy eating a family affair, everyone benefits!

Whether you are a competitive athlete or just enjoy working out, what you eat will affect your performance. An eating strategy can support your training, performance and overall health.  Your body needs the right carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins, minerals, and fluid to fuel it for exercise. Even if you’re not competing in a sport with a finish line, eating right can help you train harder. It can delay the onset of fatigue and aid in your recovery from a work out. With the right diet you can achieve peak performance. Learn more about eating for sports and performance before the big game:


Eating Before a Game:

Eating proper foods before physical activity can give you the energy and strength you need to finish strong. Look for options high in carbohydrates, adequate in protein and moderate in fat and fiber. These foods are good choices for a pre-activity meal. You should eat a larger meal three or four hours before exercise. Closer to the activity, have a small snack such as fruit. This will give you the last-minute bump your body needs.
