Fueling Kids for Sports
Date:10/30/2008

KINGSBURG, Calif., Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Whether going all out for the soccer team or training for a dance performance, the energy needs of kids and teens are generally greater than adults. After all, they need nutrition for growth as well as sports performance, and that energy largely comes from the foods they consume.

Nutritious snacks that fuel the body for activity go a long way to helping young athletes perform at their best. Portable snacks before and after exercise to achieve a sustained energy boost are as close as your pantry.

Sun-Maid Growers of California have made it especially easy for on-the-go families with a variety of pre-measured boxes of Sun-Maid Natural Raisins, and soon with new single serve packages of golden raisins and dried cranberries. Each box is about 90 calories, the ideal serving size for a quick energy boost for older kids and teens.

For very active sports like football, basketball, hockey and soccer, keeping young athletes fueled before and after practice is essential. That's not always easy when racing to the field after school. The answer comes from this on-the-go snack. Protein from the nuts, whole grains and raisins for energy and a touch of sweetness from honey are what make granola cups ideal for a pre- or post-game treat.
