Little Athletes: What to Feed Your Kids on Game Day

Here at Athlete Food, we've been discussing what to feed the little athletes in our lives. Melissa's kids are heavy into sports in Nashville - swimming, soccer, track, hockey, baseball, gymnastics. I'm dizzy just thinking about how many times she has to back her car out of the driveway to drive to a practice. Meanwhile, in NYC, I'm happy if my picky 2 year old eats anything before her ballet classes, even if it's a doughnut we pick up on the walk to the studio.

On my flight to California last week, I came up with this chart based on these notes form our conversations:

- Before: Focus on carbs, oatmeal with fruit and nuts, chocolate chip pancakes or pumpkin waffles.

- During: fruit, crispy sunflower squares or DIY granola bars

- After: Treats! Pizza (with as many veggies on it as possible) and, yes, those are cupcakes. 

As we figure out what works and what doesn't we'll continue to share our recipes and ideas with you. If you've come up with any winning game day food, we'd love to hear about it!
