Hi Mom

Glad that you are concerned about your child!
To give proper advice for a huge question like this usually takes at least an hour therefore you will appreciate that I rather direct you to purchasing the book EATING FOR SPORT by Sally Meltzer which will precisely answer all your questions and you can do so in your own time and pace.

Good luck and take care.
