Now into our second week of school, the academic calendar isn’t the only thing that is ramping up. Our sports calendar is filling with all things soccer….practice, tournaments and games. Although it seems that the season never really ends, fall and spring are the busiest.
All this activity (especially when the days are hot and the games long) means that two things become a necessity…food and drink. While I try to keep lots of snacks on hand, keeping them hydrated is important too. We’ve never been big into sports drinks like Gatorade, especially after our dentist mentioned that it contains more sugar than soda. A sports bottle of cold water is usually their first choice, followed closely by some Watermelon or Fruit Punch Nuun. We tried coconut water, but with only mixed reviews we haven’t bought it regularly.
