I’m on soccer snack duty so i came up with the ultimate sideline Soccer Snack Kit!
It’s true, I’m a soccer mom. It was bound to happen, I’m Portuguese so soccer is in our blood, and my son is no exception. The kid was born to kick the ball down the soccer field. Being a soccer mom comes with great responsibility, us moms have to make snacks for the team, someone has gotta keep those kids hydrated and fed ;). The other night was the first time I had been on soccer snack duty and I really wanted to come up with the ultimate snack kit (crafty-mom overachiever here!) with foods and drinks that were hydrating and not too sugary, but still fun for the kids.
I wandered around my local Walmart for awhile (I do my best thinking strolling up and down the aisles) and I spotted a 12 pack of 12 ounce POWERADE®. Those kids may be little but they all work up a sweat out there running up and down the field and POWERADE®’s ION4® Advanced Electrolyte System helps replenish four electrolytes lost in sweat: sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium. Better yet, there was a coupon on the 12-pack 12 oz POWERADE® packages for $1 off Walmart fresh produce when you buy two 12-pack 12 oz POWERADE® (hurry this deal is only available while supplies lasts!). I grabbed two packs and headed to the fresh produce section. My store has a really great selection and the produce always looks so good. For my ultimate soccer snack kit I picked out strawberries and blueberries, and for a special treat I got some grapes to go on my pretzel kabobs.
Yep, you heard right, pretzel kabobs! This is my creative way to get kids to eat on the go during breaks in their game and it worked! What kid doesn’t love pretzels, cheese, pepperoni and grapes? I stuck the pepperoni, one grape and a cheese cube on a pretzel sticks and called them Power Kabobs. I boxed them up along with a snack bag of fresh fruit and a 12 oz. POWERADE®. I passed the soccer snack kits out to the kids when they were on the sidelines and needed a little boost. The kids loved the pretzel kabobs, and the POWERADE® went fast!
POWERADE® is also teaming up with an organization that is close to my heart. POWERADE® believes that we all have the ability to power through and reach our athletic potential. POWERADE® is teaming up with the Boys and Girls Club, providing the belief, emotional and physical support, and hydration young athletes need to perform. I think it is great that they are working with such an inspiring group!
I am a proud soccer mom, who wouldn’t be with this adorable future MVP!?!
