Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Nutrition is an important element of preparation for athletic performance and may also influence the health of active individuals. Athletes’ dietary intakes often do not meet sports nutrition recommendations for optimal performance. Likewise, dietary intakes of the general population are inconsistent with dietary guidelines and contribute to poor acute and chronic health.
Sport settings are also nutrition settings. Recreational athletes, professional athletes and spectators alike consume food and beverages at these venues. Food service systems vary, with bring-your-own, externally catered or internal volunteer or professionally run services. Dietary behaviours of athletes and spectators may be influenced by the physical environment within the sport setting or through interactions with others in the sport context. Further research is needed to better understand how interventions in sport settings can influence eating behaviours both within and outside of the sports context.
We welcome reviews, observational and intervention studies that explore the complex interactions between nutrition, health and sporting environments.
