AccuWeather—May 11, 2017

With increased outdoor activity in the upcoming summer months, HSS sports dietician and sports performance specialist Jason Machowsky RD, CSSD, RCEP, CSCS tells AccuWeather how young athletes can maintain proper nutrition and hydration.

"When competing or training during summer sports, especially during prolonged practice and/or if in the heat and humid weather, you want to make sure you get the 'Big Three': fluid, electrolytes and carbs," said Machowsky.

"Foods including yogurt, fruit, sandwiches, trail mix or cereal with low-fat milk are good sources of carbohydrates, energy and electrolytes."
