Establishing nutrition and lifestyle behaviors that support a healthy life is an enormous responsibility parents have towards their children. What children learn to eat and what habits they acquire may be perpetuated into adulthood, dramatically affecting quality of life. This critical task is often made more difficult by the daunting amount of information and opinions on the topic, as well as the perception that better needs to be more expensive.  Because parents may not have the time to study the newest research or cost compare with every trip to the market, this brief primer together with the resources that follow, as well as the information presented at the CrossFit Kids Trainer Course, are meant to assist parents and CrossFit Kids Trainers alike. Foundational concepts are presented that lead to a minimal set of aspects to move towards prioritizing. Specifically, calorie counting is not the best option nor is replacing real food with distilled or re-amalgamated versions of it. Instead,
children should be taught how to make the best food and drink choices possible and that appropriate sleep and recovery are just as important as exercise; these are lifestyle lessons than can be learned at home and within a CrossFit Kids program.
