Updated: Sep 13, 2021

While many dancers strive to fuel healthily, making the most out of your meals can be overwhelming. In today’s world especially, dancers need strong immune systems and healthy bodies ready for whatever challenge may come next. Registered dietician nutritionist Kristin Koskinen discusses nutritional needs for dancers and how to shape lifelong healthy eating habits. Kristin examines common mistakes dancers make in fueling choices, and how you can shape a flexible diet built to shift around external factors. She’ll explore creating flexible strategies like a Ballet Bento Box and discuss the base requirements of any foundationally strong diet. Additionally, Kristin lists immune-boosting nutrients and how to find them in foods; explores why stress causes nutritional deficiencies; and explains why removing common inflammatory foods from your diet might help your overall health.
