Nothing says baseball tournament trip like kids wearing cleats and uniforms at an out of town fast food joint. It’s the cheap and easy way to fill up a van full of kids on the way home. But it’s probably not the best way to restore nutrients after a long day on the field.
The fact is, with a little preparation and a trip to the grocery store you can feed a van full of kids with much healthier alternatives.
Here’s some examples:
Sliced fresh fruit and cut vegetables - Apples, Bananas, Carrots, Celery
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
Single serving tuna with easy-open tops and crackers.
Trail mix made from dried nuts, seeds, pretzels, and fruits.
Yogurt in single serving packages.
Whole grain crackers.
It may be easier to pull into a fast food joint and fill up on heavily fried and salted treats, but if you want to do the kids a big favor have them eat something that will give their young bodies the vitamins and nutrients for a strong, healthy recovery.
