Two Great Team Snack Ideas

Kraft-Heinz sponsored this post, but the opinions are my own.

Does your child’s team require you to bring in team snacks? Luckily, none of the sports that my son participates in requires it, but I know many moms who have to deal with this. Participating in sports is a great way for children to exercise and make new friends, but deciding what to bring when it is your turn to provide the snack can feel overwhelming. You want something to fuel your kids with energy and replenish the nutrients lost on the field, track or court.

If I don’t really know a parent, I would be a bit wary to let my son eat something that they’ve made in their kitchen. I’m sure I’m not the only who feels that way, so the first thing to consider is something prepackaged. This way, the parents can read the label and discover exactly what is in it. This is especially important if some players have allergies or other dietary restrictions that prevent them from being as adventurous in what they eat. Prepackaged products are also easier to hand out to each player. Next, you should try to limit the number of items you bring. Not only will bringing 20 snacks for every kid quickly strain your budget, you’ll also spoil whatever meal their families planned after the game. It is best to bring one snack and a drink per child. So, what are the best team snack ideas? Planter’s P3 Portable Protein Packs are convenient single-serve packages that consist of roasted Planters nuts alongside premium-cut lean jerky and seeds. They pack a whopping 13g of protein. They are also available in a variety of flavors such as Original Beef Jerky and Maple-Glazed Ham to please picky palettes. You can find it in the Nut aisle at your local Walmart.

Making sure your children stay hydrated is very important. The electrolytes contained in sports drinks are perfect for staying hydrated, but they often have too much sugar and too many calories to give to kids regularly. Capri Sun Sport is the perfect solution. Not only does it contain electrolytes, it also contains less sugar (8g per 6oz. vs. 10.5oz.) and 25 percent fewer calories than regular sports drinks. The pouches are convenient to distribute to the entire team, and kids can choose between three flavors (Fruit Frenzy, Citrus Rush, and Grape Blast) to ensure that they get something they like. All three lack artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives, so you can trust what you are giving to the kids. You can find Capri Sun sport in the juice aisle along with the other Capri Sun varieties.
