Youth Sport Nutrition believe in a food first approach, but we understand that this may not always possible due to four main barriers:
Education - Lack of knowledge on why, what and when to eat.
Taste - Young people can be very fussy eaters.
Time - As a parent there is no goal nobler than helping your child chase their dream, but bills still need to be paid, and time is always running away.
Money - Eating the right food all the time can be expensive, especially if you find one or all of the above a struggle.
Over the course of 2 years, PRO-TEEN® was developed as an alternative to mass-market supplements, specially designed to meet the unique and advanced nutritional demands and values of younger athletes competing in sport, whether they are world class, or aspiring to achieve more at their respective level.

The YSN initiative was born in our founders' early Strength & Conditioning & Nutrition career within Professional Academy teams in the English Premier League.
Parents were struggling to ensure their sons and daughters were getting adequate nutrition for their individual levels of exertion daily, and only had off the shelf supplement choices designed for adults to help them with, which may contain elements or ingredients that are not tested or beneficial for youths in high level sport.
This along with marketing & mass media representations of overly muscular physiques or very skinny female models posed a huge problem for adolescent athletes, parents and professional sporting academies.
This is problem is compounded by the fact youth athletes have a tendency to not enjoy the taste of vegetables which contain critical nutrients to support their hyperactive lifestyles, in favour of readily available, cheap sugary or fast foods which offer little to no benefit.
So, YSN was incorporated to solve this problem by identifying the needs of adolescent athletes and working backwards to design a food supplement range suited for youth athletes.
By collating University research and UK, EU health commission data, the team at YSN worked night and day to develop a unique supplement range exclusive to supporting a youth athletes recovery.
Fast forward 2 years, and YSN now manufactures the first sports nutrition product for youth athletes. PRO-TEEN® was developed as an alternative to mass market supplements, to meet the unique and advanced nutritional demands and values of younger athletes competing in sport, whether they are world class, or aspiring to achieve more at their respective level.
