Due to the emphasis placed on the body in sports and performing arts athletes can be at greater risk of developing issues around their body image and eating. At Dare to Fuel Performance we know that parents are our biggest allies in ensuring the safety and well-being of athletes and artists. In order to help you in this mission we have put together resources specifically designed for parents to help their child athletes optimally fuel themselves, develop confidence in their body and protect themselves from disordered eating behaviours and attitudes.
