Last school year our district began offering a program that we’ve fallen in love with. The program is at the elementary level and introduces students to a variety of sports in 6-8 week increments. Everything from soccer to softball to volleyball. Best part is that these programs are offered right after school. No extra trips to drop kids off at a practice…you know mom loves that part!

My 9-year-old decided to give volleyball a try, and she really enjoyed getting a chance to try a new sport. She was in 3rd grade at the time and really hadn’t been introduced to volleyball yet in her school gym classes. Her interest was piqued though watching beach volleyball being played during the Summer Olympics in 2016. Between volleyball and swimming she found some sports she definitely wanted to try.

The only downside to these sports classes being held immediately after school is dismissed is that my daughter was HUNGRY. Lunch was well-worn off by 4pm, and dinner was at least 6pm; after we’ve driven home when her volleyball class was finished. She needed something before we even arrived at home, she was SO hungry on the ride to our house. She is a growing kid who just exerted loads of energy!

This year I’ve hit the aisles at my local Walmart store and found some fuel and hydration solutions. Items that I can easily pop into her backpack for her to enjoy before or after practices. Hydration is essential, so why not hydrate with a purpose? Capri Sun Sport is a flavored water beverage with a blend of electrolytes and water.  I love that there’s no high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. My kids really enjoyed Fruit Frenzy & Grape Blast. This drink is designed with kids in mind, and I found it in the juice aisle right next to Capri Sun varieties at Walmart.

Hydration is one thing, but she needs fuel to keep her going also. Have you tried P3 Protein Snacks? We’re loving the protein they supply. 13g of protein that she can easily eat in the car or waiting for practice to start. Portable and convenient, I’m sold!

You can easily find them in the aisle next to nuts and seeds. These are shelf-stable snacks that do not need refrigeration. I’ve begun keeping one in my purse for days when I need a pick me up while I’m on-the-go!

We really enjoyed the P3 Maple-Glazed Ham Jerky paired with honey roasted peanuts and sunflower kernels.

I’m no longer worried that I’ll be picking up a kid after practice with a serious case of the hangries. A quick trip to Walmart has helped solve that problem.

And what could be easier than just popping a Capri Sun Sport and a P3 Protein Snack into her backpack? Besides, I have to kepe her fueled and hydrated for when she moves onto homework!
