What would you bring???

DS is on a t-ball team of mostly 4 year olds. We are the first ones on the calendar to bring snacks for the team game. What snacks would you bring for a group of 4 year olds? I don't want to bring junk food, but I also don't want the kids to be like "eww health food" and not eat what we bring. Any ideas?

  • my sons tball season just ended 3-5yr range, so ya that was tons of fun (sarcasm)
    When it was our turn I made a trail mix. Chex cereal, honey cheerios, teddy grahms, m&m's, and yogurt covered cranberries. Other people brought store bought things like cheese its, or those cakes (zebra cakes I think their called)
    and a juice box.
    Just stay away from things like nuts

  • When I played soccer we always did slices of naval oranges. You can also try baked cheetos, they are rather healthy and kids love them.

  • When I was younger and played soccer, we brought the orange slices for the half time break. But we always brought a different snack and drink for the kids to have for when the game is over. I plan on bringing orange slices, but I also want to bring a different snack and drink for after the game. I try not to let my child eat chips or any sort, so I'm not sure that other parents would appreciate me bringing chips for their child either. Any other ideas?

  • Maybe fruit cups or real fruit popsicles if you have a cooler..

  • Beef Jerky and chocolate milk! Beef Jerky is loaded with protien, and I saw on "The Drs." the other day that chocolate milk is WAY better for you after a workout than Gatorade. It is also loaded with protien.

  • imamommmmyyy - type out the ingredients and see how healthy they are!! If they are processed and full of chemicals they are NOT a healthy snack!!
