Healthy eating is so important for us all to provide us with the correct balance of nutrients we need on a daily basis but particularly for GAA players so that they are adequately fuelled for training and exercise. Players need the correct nutrition for energy but also for recovery and repair after games.”
Through Recipes for Success, the gaa want to show players that healthy eating doesn’t have to be difficult or time consuming; these resources are very practical and aim to provide players with easy to follow, nutritious recipes as well as information on healthy eating.
“Now more than ever, people are interested in the area of good nutrition and cooking, so it's all about bringing the resources to the players and to club members so that they have the knowledge and skills themselves.
