It’s basketball season and my little baller needs the energy so he can run up and down the court the entire game.
Thankfully Armour LunchMakers® + Drink makes it easy for me to come up with snacks before each game. I make sure to stock up on them when I’m grocery shopping at Albertsons.
Give kids snack options
I like to keep several varieties on hand so he can choose which one he wants that day.
His favorites are the Ham & American Cheese LunchMakers® + Drink, Turkey & American Cheese LunchMakers® + Drink and Pepperoni Pizza LunchMakers® + Drink.
The fact that they come with a drink makes it easier for when we are snacking on-the-go.
The drink is made with 100% juice and has a fruit bar made with real fruit. I have the hardest time getting my son to eat fruit, but apparently he doesn’t realize the bars have fruit in them. It’s a huge win for me!
These LunchMakers® + Drink products are great for lunches, on-the-go snacks and before sporting events.
Why kids should play team sports
Kids learn so much from doing and playing sports are a great tool for learning life lessons.
- How to deal with failure – In life, you don’t always get a pat on the back or a trophy for showing up. You have to learn to work hard and event then, sometimes you fail. Losing games, not making the shot and letting down teammates are all great life experiences. Children, just like adults have to learn how to overcome failure and know how to respond when life doesn’t go how we wanted.
- Team player – Sports help kids learn to share, work together and have a sense of accountability. They must learn to work as a cohesive unit in order to be successful. This makes winning fun know you can celebrate together or lean on each other during tough losses.
- Coordination – whether they learn beginners basketball drills or how to run with a ball in soccer, one skill that kids will learn in any sport is coordination. As you know, coordination is a skill that everyone can benefit from having throughout their lives.
- Hard work – Sports help children understand that winning and successes have to be earned, not given. It gives them a sense of accomplishment knowing they worked hard to earn the “W” or that trophy. This is a lesson that they will have to carry with them the rest of their life.
