Even for Kids!!
Most of you know that my kids are all into sports, they are truly athletes. God has brought us into an adventure that we never knew we would be a part of with these younger kids of ours. Sports are intense these days..you can’t believe what training they are put through..it’s really quite amazing. And of course they LOVE it!
Kids that play physically demanding sports need more calories than the average child. The question is..where are they going to get these extra calories. I can get pretty radical about what they eat, how much they drink and what they drink, how much rest there bodies need and so forth. If you saw how there bodies were working..you would too. Lately however one of my teens doesn’t want to eat much but junk food. It drives me crazy. Now I know I need to let her have ownership of her own body but I try to at least offer her some things that seem like junk food but are really healthy …such as:
- Chicken and Beef Quesadillas
- Veggie Wraps
- Sqwinchers Lite Qwik Stik
When playing sports I’m radical that my kids drink LOTS of water. After games however they are allowed to have a healthy drink such as Sqwincher. Sqwincher is an Electrolyte Replacement Mix. I have to be honest, I didn’t use to like my kids to drink this type of thing when younger, but now that they are older I’m happy to see them drinking it AFTER a game.
What changed my mind? Well for one thing, I felt that this was a good way to replace some of the lost Electrolytes that massive sweating depletes there bodies of. My kids are really sweaters. Also, since my daughter especially is not eating much fruit these days, and has even had a couple of charlie horses because of it..Sqwinchers replaces some of that lost potassium. A lack of potassium can cause charlie horses. The other thing I noticed was that after playing a very strenuous game, my kids are usually so drained, but I noticed that after drinking Sqwincher Lite they seemed more energized and not so exhausted.
Now water is still the rule for during games, but after seeing the difference that Sqwincher Lite made after the games..this will be part of our healthy routine.
And by the way, ALL of my kids LOVED the taste..we have lemonade. But even better, my husband, who is a diabetic can drink it because it is sugar free! Yay!! Oh and 0 calories! Yay again! Thank you Sqwincher Lite!
