Vitamin supplements for athletes?

Do young athletes need to take vitamins? Like anyone else, only if they’re not eating healthy everyday. Athletes who work out hard, however, need more calories than the average person. If the extra food they consume is nutritious, they’ll get all the vitamins they need. Any extra goes down the toilet. I call it the “water bucket theory.” You can pour only so much water in a bucket before it overflows. Be careful that your young athlete doesn’t fall into the trap of taking vitamins to make up for a poor diet, or as a last ditch effort to improve his/her stamina.
