Childrens Football Is Not Racist

Childrens Football Is Not Racist
In a week when Dani Alves, the great Brazilian right back, turns the tables on racist bullies, we ask why is children's football not racist and how can we keep it that way?Dany Alves playing for Barcelona versus Villa Real last Sunday was the victim of racist bullies who threw bananas at him as he was preparing to take a corner kick. Dani surprised everyone and turned the tables by picking up the banana and eating it in front of the crowd before taking the corner kick.It was a great way of responding and has brought widespread support and publicity in the media, social media and has been widely backed by fellow football stars and senior leadership of the beautiful game. I have always felt that reacting badly by getting upset or angry at the actions of racist bullies gives them what they want. They want a reaction, they want you to feel bad and they want you to take your mind off the game and help their own team. Dani didn't let them get the better of him and Barcelona from 2-...

What are healthy eating habits for Childrens Football?

What are healthy eating habits for Childrens Football?
Kids football diets are often the topics of debate for busy parents asking themselves what stuff should we be feeding our children for football? Not only is it for nutritional purposes but also how do we get them off to good eating habits early in their lives.Honing skills getting tactically clued up is part of development but so is developing healthy eating habits. If our children develop a sense of healthy eating early in their development years it can pay dividends for a future healthy lifestyle in and out of their sporting careers.If we feed them with the wrong stuff then not only will their football suffer, so will our childrens physical development.So what foods should our budding Beckhams eat to aid their football development? With experts and government now saying that we should be moving more towards 7 portions of fruit and veg per day from their traditional 5-a-day recommendation, food and how we re-fuel is crucial to how we bring up our children and create the best of habits...

Why Kids Love Sport

Why Kids Love Sport
Why is it that kids love sport so much? Because they do - we see it everywhere - My little ones love active sports, running around chasing each other, racing each other, making up games with their very own set of rules, picking up any old ball, bits of sticks and broken toys and creating their own new world. When children get to organised sports they are enthralled - but what is it about games and active sport Kids love? We all want our children to be active and to have fun, to help them with a foundation for a healthy life. So how can we help and recognise the things that encourage an active child hood and an active teen?  There are lots of views and opinions but one particular piece of research came to my notice recently.  Michigan State University embarked upon understanding this a little more and asked a group of girls and boys what their views were on sport and in particular why they got involved and why they play organised...
