We are a Sports family. All year long.
Just because the school year is winding down, do not think our sports schedule is doing the same. Sure, in the Fall – it is soccer and basketball, but in the Spring and Summer, we are running full-tilt into softball and baseball. Both small people. And I’m told this is just the beginning. (I was not much of an athlete growing up, so ‘traveling teams’ are foreign to me…but apparently they have a place in my very near future)
So…here’s the thing: as the mom of a couple of little athletes, my job is to keep them healthy and hydrated. This means skipping the sugary snacks that seemed to populate the end of every Pee-Week soccer game. ESPECIALLY because they are a) working hard on the field and b) it is HOT in St. Louis in the summer.
But I still want something they will enjoy, right?
Good news. The Dish… Con Agra’s newest site for bloggers, has a whole list of Quick Snacks for Sports – including items you can dish up on the sidelines and things you can serve on the fly at home. Think peanut butter. Think apples. Think cold water. Think lemons. Think cheese.
Nice Save, Dish.
