Healthy Snacks and Good Hydration

Date Posted: 9/27/2014

The Mecklenburg County Medical Society’s Child Health Committee has been concerned about the number of sports teams which traditionally close a game or match with unhealthy snacks. So many times the empty calories offered just after a game balance or even overshoot the calories expended by the players. By the time the tired athlete gets to the car, he or she may have consumed twice what their exercise just used up. An hour later, when these quick burn calories are history, they will be hungry again. Offering a snack after a game is something individuals or coaches can decide, but if a snack is chosen, there are some wonderful, refreshing and healthy options that make the best choices.
