Sports and athletics offer you a great way to keep your kid active, and
providing her good nutrition is important for supporting her busy lifestyle.
If your child participates in
gymnastics, then consider giving her one of the following easy-to-make and healthy
snacks after practice:
Fruit smoothies are simple to prepare, taste great, and give you an easy
way to provide your young gymnast with a serving of greens. For a berry
smoothie, blend milk or a milk alternative with some frozen berries and
whichever other fruits you’d like. After blending these ingredients,
add a handful of kale or spinach to the mix. While the greens will darken
the smoothie’s color, your kid probably won’t be able to taste
them at all.
Veggies and Dip
While veggies and ranch dressing is a favorite snack and appetizer for
many, you can create a healthier version of this combo by replacing the
dressing with hummus, Greek yogurt, or guacamole. Serve your dip with
cut veggies like carrots, celery, broccoli, and cauliflower.
Peanut Butter and Bananas
When it comes to preparing a tasty, simple, and healthy snack for your
young gymnast, it’s hard to go wrong with bananas and peanut butter.
Bananas are a great source of potassium that can help your kid’s
body better absorb fluids, and they can also help replenish her carbohydrates.
Additionally, peanut butter is a good source of protein.
If you want to prepare something savory and crunchy for your athlete, then
avocado on toast offers you a great solution. Avocados are creamy and
delicious, but they’re also nutritious, boasting an impressive amount
of healthy omega-3 fats in addition to some protein. Halve the avocado,
scoop out the flesh with a spoon, and then spread it on slices of bread.
Then, toast the combination and season to taste.
