The collaboration with the Italian Football Federation (Youth and Scholastic Sector , National Secretary Dr. Vito Di Gioia) continues in 2020. It began in 2019 with an educational project in three Federal Territorial Centers – CFT (Verano Brianza, Corticella and Casalnuovo), whose results were presented in the last 2019 National Congress in Genova.
This year, the nutrition education project is planned on three levels of intervention:
– Nutrition education to young football players, structured in face-to-face meetings, educational workshops and training modules on electronic devices, which will be conducted in three other CFTs
-Training meetings on healthy eating for families and coaches, which will be planned in 50 CFTs distributed throughout the country
– Advanced courses in nutrition and nutrition in sports, for national staff of coaches, with sessions both face-to-face and through electronic devices.
The project can be achieved thanks to the availability and commitment of a large group of SINU Members, in particular the SINU Young Working Group.
With this project the SINU aims to promote healthy eating in adolescents, especially those involved in a sport practice, their families and coaches.
