Sunderland College are now working in partnership with Youth Sport Nutrition who are offering us some great nutrition advice and benefits. The information and offers are open to all our students and student athletes.

1. Youth Sport Nutrition have provided us with two very useful documents, the first, Nutrition Basics is a brief introduction to the very basics of nutrition. It explains what a managed approach to nutrition contains, and why nutrition is important for youth athletes. The second is their Nutrition Guide, which contains a little more information about each component of nutrition, to get everyone up to speed.

2. Sunderland College members have been given 20% off YSN PROTEEN® for the duration of the partnership. The product is the first to market globally, and crucially batch tested by Informed Sport® to ensure it does not contain any prohibited substances. Please see their Product Information document and also their PROTEEN FAQ. These flyers will answer the majority of your questions, but feel free to email their team at with any additional questions.

3. YSN Kitchen App. The app will contain recipes for youth athletes, meal plans and more. All the meals can be made for under £5 and prepared in less than 5 minutes. You will have access to the entire app for free.
