Junior Sport Gummies

Providing junior athletes with fuel when they need it the most

  • 33 g of carbohydrates per sachet
  • Carbohydrates contribute to the replenishment of muscle glycogen during exercise
  • Long lasting fuel supply

Carbohydrates are the main source of fuel in the diet especially when it comes to endurance sport. Therefore, the availability of carbohydrates is one of the main determinants of performance in prolonged exercise. To maximize the availability of muscle glycogen, junior athletes can ensure they increase carbohydrate stores before exercise, as well as topping up fuel stores during prolonged exercise.

In general, junior athletes who do intensive sport should eat 5-6 grams of carbohydrate per kg of body weight per day (or even more) to ensure they are prepared for the demands of their sport. This can be reached by a child eating carbohydrate-rich foods spread over different meals. For particularly active children, eating enough carbohydrate is essential as this will fuel their active lifestyles.

Junior athletes may have a higher energy need than adults as they expend more energy per kg of body weight and therefore understanding energy requirements is essential. As such, children that participate in prolonged endurance exercise (longer than 90 minutes) will need to ensure that they top up and refuel with carbohydrates during exercise to avoid fatigue. The Etixx Sport Gummies Junior could help with this as they provide 33 g of carbohydrate per sachet. They are easy to eat and replenish carbohydrate quickly to provide energy. Consuming carbohydrates during exercise will help to maintain blood glucose and replenish muscle glycogen. If no carbohydrates are consumed, muscle glycogen will be depleted after approx. 90 minutes of exercise and severe fatigue may occur.

Moreover, junior athletes tend to participate in a whole range of sports and therefore it is important that they keep their energy topped up between training sessions or games to ensure they can perform without fatigue. The Etixx Sport Gummies Junior can be used as a snack between sessions to ensure junior athletes continue to perform at their best.
