Spring sports are in full swing. If your child’s team gathers after games for a snack, I’ve got 20 healthy ideas for you!
Too many typical team snacks–like gummy fruit snacks, cookies, donuts, and chips–are full of sugar, sodium, and artificial stuff. But fruits (and veggies) are hydrating, sweet, simple, and full of good nutrition kids need. Unlike lots of packaged stuff, they’re usually safe for players with food allergies too.
If you’d like to see healthier snacks on the sidelines of your child’s sports, I’ve compiled 20 ideas for you that are easy and healthy and put them in a free printable. Use it when it’s your turn to bring the team snack. You can also pass it along to other team parents, coaches, and league directors if you’d like to see healthier team snacks in your community.
