We were very lucky and really excited to have Prof. Sharon Madigan host a webinar on Wednesday night; it was a huge success with over 500 people registering to attend. If you couldn’t make the webinar live, don’t worry we made sure to record it so that you can catch up in your own time.

We learnt about context, keeping our energy above the line, what 5,000 calories looks like, and there were even appearances from Phil Doyle and Lydia Heaphy.

At the end of the session we left time for a Q&A, where Sharon gave tips around fuelling hungry teens, how to recognise low energy in yourself or someone else, and discussed returning to training after illness.

To accompany the webinar we have a number of resources that you might find useful. These include recipes for the food featured, infographics, contact details for reliable sources of information.
