"Track and field athletes in our National Scholastic Athletic Foundation (NSAF) community, whether runners, jumpers or throwers, need complete nutrition to fuel themselves for all of the rigors of training, and the full life experience of being a teenage student-athlete. You can't take any shortcuts. The "Build Your Base" program offers nutritional education information that they can use as part of that balanced approach. High-quality protein is essential for student-athletes and available from many sources. It's valuable for them to learn how beef can be integrated into a nutritional profile to provide that."
