The Dairy Council organises a series of seminars for sports nutrition professionals. These highlight the latest sports nutrition research and its practical application, including the science behind the role of milk in sport.

Topics have included:

  • Post–exercise recovery strategies
  • Protein and adaptations to training; effects of different protein sources; food matrix effects
  • Optimising rehydration after exercise
  • Practical nutrition insights from the 2012, 2016 & 2020 Olympics and Paralympics
  • Sports nutrition in practice with young people
  • Relative energy deficiency in sport (RED–S)
  • Influences of diet and exercise on bone health in athletes
  • Performance nutrition for rowing, cycling, gymnastics, swimming, football, hockey, boxing, judo, rugby and athletics

Nutrition and health professionals can find more detailed information on the seminars, including the speakers’ presentations, on the health professional section of the website.
