Eating right on game day is your athlete’s secret weapon for top-notch performance, whatever the sport.

Here’s a sample game day nutrition plan:

• Pre-game breakfast. Gather together the family for a pre-game breakfast about three hours before the event. Serve sliced and lightly grilled potatoes paired with scrambled eggs and fruit such as berries along with calcium-fortified orange juice or fat-free milk for a nutritious pre-game meal.
