Would you think anything of this as another parent?

Okay my son is 3 and in soccer. The coach this season has been very disorganized and never made a snack/drink list for the games. Well only 1 other mom and myself has brought snacks EVER. He has already had 8 games. The game that neither of us went to (her son was sick and we were out of town) nobody brought snacks at all so the kids didnt get any but saw the other team getting some. Anyways I told the other mom I would put some in my car for the next game in case no one brought any. I have now got a little lazy and don't feel like running to the store. So would you allow your child to have snack size bags of gold fish or something similar (something that is not pre packaged but in zip lock type bagz)?

I would bring a snack for my child, and let them have it in the car afterward. Did anyone ask the coach for a snack list when one wasn't passed out? If he's a first time coach he may not have known to make one for the team.

He's one of those guys, lol. My daughter's coach is like that, but he just brings the snack to every game since he didn't make a list.

No but most teams do and if there is no snack the kids get upset because they see the other team with them.

Making a snack list is usually the job of the team mom not the coach. Who's the team mom?

I would allow my kid to have it.  But really that is neither here nor there.  You've already gone above and beyond taking care of it every single time with that one other mom.  It's nice of you to do, but not necessary.  At this point, I think I'd just worry about bringing a snack for my own kid.

People don't bring snacks here. I find it odd that its required.
