Teens involved in a lot of sporting activity, such as swimming, rugby, hockey, cricket, dancing, netball and running, will benefit from the use of soya based meals (e.g. Soya Life porridge used early morning before a training session), and soya drinks (e.g. Soya Life Meal Replacement Drink as a supplement to their school lunch after school before afternoon sport) to ensure sustained energy and endurance during the sport, and improved performance.
