Fussy eaters? We’re so certain they’ll love PRO-TEEN that we offer a full refund or replacement offer for all first orders.
PRO-TEEN is the first food supplement specifically designed for youth athletes with selective diets, offering a variety of health benefits. Each shake contains a specific blend of nutrients including protein, fats, carbs and 16 essential micronutrients tailored to the unique requirements of a youth athlete. It is designed as a recovery drink or meal replacement for athletes to enjoy after intense exercise when good quality whole foods aren’t available.
Youth athletes are at a greater risk of nutritional deficiencies than the normal population, due to their training loads, busy schedules and rapid periods of growth. PRO-TEEN was developed by evaluating these common nutritional deficiencies and the heightened need for specific nutrients important for growth and development. These include calcium, vitamin D, phosphorous, vitamin B12 and vitamin B6 plus a lot more, which you can learn about here.
The elevated nutritional needs of active youths coupled with selective eating habits or lack of time, make it vitally important for an athletes diet to support normal growth, health and development in combination with participation in high-level sport. Our main objective in developing PRO-TEEN is to promote maximum performance and longevity in sport, in order to help youth athletes succeed at every level.
If you are a parent of a youth athlete who struggles with getting the right foods in, participates in frequent intense exercise and are looking for an ‘all-in-one’ recovery product, then PRO-TEEN may be the textbook choice.
PRO-TEEN is tailor made to help young athletes meet their individual daily macro and micronutrient requirements for the day, where selective eating or busy schedules/traveling may otherwise compromise ability to do so.
Please read our nutrition guide for details on age groups.
To reap the benefits of PRO-TEEN powder, we recommend consuming within 30-60 minutes post-exercise with water or milk whenever whole foods aren't available. PRO-TEEN® can also double up as a meal replacement for times where meals aren't an option on rest/recovery days.
Add 1 relative level scoop (upto 50g) to 500ml of ice cold water or milk in the free YSN Zen Shaker provided with your first order. Consume within 30-60 minutes post-exercise.
Alternatively, consume in the mornings with smoothies, porridges, Greek yoghurts, pancakes or on its own on low activity / rest days.
Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. This product is intended to be used alongside an active lifestyle and a balanced diet. Suitable for vegetarians.

To succeed at the top level, youth athletes need to work hard and eat smart. When factoring in long commutes to school/college, early morning training or late evening finishes, time pressures on parents to provide the correct meals can be difficult. Selective eating, busy schedules or long commutes sometimes get in the way.
PRO-TEEN was developed to ensure that the heightened and unique nutritional needs of a youth athlete that can’t be catered for from a regular healthy diet, can be provided in both a convenient, delicious and efficient manner after sport.
Each super-tasty shake is packed with specially selected vitamins, minerals, carbs, protein and healthy fats - the ideal alternative to skipping meals or eating junk/fast food.
"My son swims 10+ hours week for 2+ hour sessions each. PRO-TEEN has been so beneficial for him as not only is it safe for a young teenager, it’s packed with all the nutrients to help post recovery from training".
Joanne Shearer, Swim Mum
"What a difference PRO-TEEN has made to my 16y/o daughter! Highly recommend it as a parent. It really helps knowing she is getting the right nutrients after Team GB multi-sport training".
Dave Walker, Gymnastics Dad
Children Under 4: PRO-TEEN is not suitable for babies or infants below or during weaning age. Parents of children under 4 years old should consult their doctor or relevant health care professional before allowing their child to consume PRO-TEEN.
4 to 6: We always advocate a food first approach for younger participants. The aim here being to set nutritional foundations for life, but we understand selective eating can sometime be an issue. If necessary, Children of 4 to 6 years of age may include up to ¼ of a scoop (about 12.5g) PRO-TEEN per day. This is around one quarter of their daily nutrient requirements and can be a great recovery snack to ensure your child is getting a range of vitamins and minerals in after sport. Always consult a qualified medical practitioner first if you are unsure about introducing PRO-TEEN into their diet.
7 to 10: 7 to 10 year olds can enjoy ½ a scoop (about 25g) of PRO-TEEN per day, which would help them meet their daily nutrition needs to counter selective eating habits. PRO-TEEN is ideal for fussy kids who won’t eat enough fruit and veg to support high levels of participation in sport. Again, athletes within this age group should be encouraged to meet their daily recommended intake via whole foods first.
11 to 13: Young adolescents can include around ¾ of 1 scoop (about 37.5g) of PRO-TEEN a day. At this growth spurt age, energy requirements are high, especially in active athletic kids; PRO-TEEN provides a good contribution of protein, energy and vitamins for this age group.
13 to 18+: Older adolescents have, in most cases, nutritional requirements greater than those of adults due to the fact that they’re growing, they’re often as physically active as professional athletes and have to balance this against studying at school or college. This age group can enjoy 1 full scoop of PRO-TEEN (50g) freely as part of a balanced, varied diet after intense sport or on low activity days.
Please note: As upper safe limits for vitamins and minerals in children haven’t been evaluated, we suggest youth athletes consume PRO-TEEN up to around the recommended requirement levels for their age which is a maximum of 1 scoop per day after intense exercise or as a meal replacement on low activity days. The above gives you a guide as to how much PRO-TEEN powder a youth athlete can include as part of a varied diet, whilst encouraging them to eat good wholesome foods every day.
If your teen has health issues, we recommend you consult your doctor or relevant clinical professional before allowing them to consume PRO-TEEN.
Any values are presented as guidelines only, and that is important that youth athletes do not exceed the stated daily recommended amounts. You can read more on our PRO-TEEN Nutrition page.
