The purpose of this project was to create a nutrition education program with relevant nutrition topics for parents with at least one adolescent child attending an elite training school for figure skating. This program aims to enhance parental knowledge and increase awareness surrounding the nutrition needs of elite adolescent figure skaters. The 6-week nutrition education program consists of six 40-minute PowerPoint presentations with corresponding topic-specific handouts, activities, and lesson plans. Each lesson includes a research-based curriculum, providing parents with specific nutrition recommendations to promote healthy eating patterns for their adolescent figure skating children.
An expert panel comprised of three registered dietitians with sports nutrition experience reviewed the curriculum using the Formative Evaluation. The average scores from the evaluation were positive, indicating that the curriculum is appropriate, accurate, and provides valuable information for the target audience. To further evaluate the curriculum’s efficacy, a study could be conducted to facilitate this 6-week nutrition curriculum to determine the curriculum's effectiveness by assessing class participants’ nutrition knowledge before and after implementation.
