The backseat pass! That’s the snack toss over the shoulder to the kids to keep them satisfied on the ride home from practice. Game Ready Moms (GRM) are constantly looking for quick, healthy snacks that are also easy to carry. Let’s face it – carrying a cooler or picnic basket with fixings every single day just isn’t reasonable.
Before I tested these bites on my niece Sydney and her cheerleading team, I decided to try them myself with morning coffee. They were awesome. Moist, sweet and just the right size. I preferred the blueberry but the little ones wanted chocolate chips. These Little Bites are an awesome way to replenish the nutrients your little one uses while practicing or during game time. According to the American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO),
“Replacing carbohydrates that were used during exercise within 2 hours of completing the exercise session is essential for speeding recovery and preparing for the next athletic training period. The post-exercise meal should contain approximately 150 -200 grams of carbohydrates.”
The Entenmann’s Little Bites paired with a banana or berries are a great way to get those carbs back in quickly. (And they double as a great mom porch breakfast!) Nutrition is critical to keeping your young athlete healthy and energized for the game or match. Also critical is keeping them hydrated and cool – so keep the water handy.
