I received a ton of ideas on how to feed Aaron after the last post on FB. Thank you.
Aaron is really swimming a ton these days, two hours every morning, followed by tennis lessons, and two swim meets a week. Just now as he ran by I was taken with just how thin his legs have become in just the first week of summer. He is back in a smaller bathing suit after actually moving up a size.
I Googled our local world famous Children’s Hospital. They have a new pediatric sports medicine and performance center!!! I called them and usually they have a four month waiting list to see a nutritionist, but they magically have an opening on Thursday afternoon. They provide a list of why someone would need sport nutrition counseling. I think we completely fall under the category of , “All other medical conditions for which athletes may require nutrition counseling”.
I don’t see this love affair Aaron has with swimming ending anytime too soon since he has been swimming competitively for three years and he is just shy of seven years old. This is going to be an issues we will have to deal with as long as he is an food allergic athlete so I better start getting info about it now. I will report back…promise.
It’s a relief to live in Philly sometimes.
