In my kids' soccer league, every parent takes a turn being responsible for snack after practice once or twice during the season. It's nice because no one person gets stuck with it, but not so nice when you have to contend with allergies, food preferences, and (let's face it) judgy parents.
I personally don't like to let my kids have juice (too much sugar) but juice boxes seem to be the go-to after-practice drink. If you can, try to get the kind that are lower sugar and have a serving of veggies snuck in. These are great for my pickypants who turns up his nose at veggies but will happily enjoy a juice box since I so rarely let those happen.
Another idea is infused water. The night before the practice, load up a pitcher or drink dispenser with slices of oranges, berries, or pineapple (or whatever you like, really) and fill with enough water to cover the fruit. Before the game, add a generous amount of ice so the drink will stay cold and haul it to the field. It's refreshing and appeals to kids who don't like plain water.
Most parents also pass out granola bars, which is a fine snack, but read labels and look for bars with less sugar and unidentifiable ingredients and more fruit and whole grains. If nut allergies are not a problem with your team, try trail mix. Both these options can get pricey for a big team, so look for sales and coupons on the brands you like.
And of course, orange slices are the classic post-soccer snack for a good reason....they are hydrating, have sugar to restore the energy the kids burned off on the field, and are easy to make, transport and eat.
What's your go-to snack when it's your turn as snack parent?
