Kids lead very active lives these days with after school sports and activities.  Proper nutrition and hydration are important when your child is out on the soccer or baseball field or playing games in the neighborhood.  Here are some easy summer snacks for kids ideas from Healthy Sport Snacks for Kids | Bright Horizons Parenting BlogThe Family Room


Snacks Before A Sporting Event Or Outdoor Activity

  • Wheat bagel half with jam
  • Fruit: banana and strawberries, grapes and cherries, or a peach/plum/nectarine
  • Popcorn with low salt & little butter
  • Trail mix or dried fruit
  • Carrot and celery sticks with lowfat dressing
  • Animal crackers with orange slices
  • Whole wheat crackers


  • Snacks After A Sporting Event Or Outdoor Activity

  • Lowfat yogurt with granola or fruit
  • Applesauce and string cheese
  • Pretzels and lowfat milk
  • Hummus and mini pita

  • Some tips for proper nutrition begin with having a healthy breakfast. During the day eating a variety of foods from whole grains, protein, lowfat dairy, fruits and vegetables.  Cut back as much as possible on sodas, chips and candy.  Drink lots of water before, during and after outdoor games and activities.  With the proper balance of exercise and nutritious foods your child can have a fun and energetic summer.
