DURING SPORT–HALF-TIME BOOSTERS

If children need an energy boost at half-time or between games when time is really short, it is vital to get the nutrition right. The right kind of snack will help to recharge and rehydrate tired muscles and keep energy levels up without needing to reach for the gummy bears.

Consuming carbohydrates in the form of fruit will help achieve this while helping to combat dehydration.

  • Some orange segments
  • Grapes (frozen grapes are perfect for a hot day)

  • Handful of berries

  • A peach or nectarine
  • A small kiwi

Don’t forget that frozen fruit and canned, unsweetened fruit also work well. And of course, any snacks eaten while playing sports should always be washed down with plenty of water!
