It's never too early to show children the importance of eating snacks that provide calories and replenishment. You want to fuel-up your little athletes, not bog them down, so the snacks you choose should:

  • Provide energy for working muscles to power through the activity (pre-exercise)
  • Supply fluids for hydration and to maintain the body’s temperature (before, during and after exercise)
  • Provide nutrients for growth and development
  • Promote recovery after hard exercise

Yet, in our busy and overbooked lives, we often choose to ignore this signal, waiting far too long to feed our empty stomachs. The body's response to being ignored is to cause an emotional reaction (like anxiety and stress) to prompt a reaction. And the longer the body is deprived, the greater the emotional response.
