How to Eat Right when You have Children in Sports

When you have children in sports, you are constantly on the go. You hardly have any time for much else because you’re always running from one practice or game to the next. There are a few things you can do to help with meals during these busy times of the year.

1. Going out to eat is one way, but it’s not healthy for your family and it usually costs more in the long run. While this is the most convenient thing to do, it’s not the best. So this option should be avoided if it’s at all possible.

2. Crockpot meals are one of the best things to do. You can plan to have them ready when you’re done with your running. There are so many, cookbook as well as boxed and sacked crockpot meals that only require a few ingredients. Most of these meals take 8-10 hours on low and 4-5 hours on high so they can be started in the morning before you leave for work or at lunch time so they’re done when your events are over or before they start.

3. Quick meals are another option. These would include tacos, hamburgers, and breakfast. There are so many more options out there that you may be amazed at the number of meals that take less than 15 minutes to prepare and cook.

4. Freezer cooking is another option to consider. When you do this option, you take a day or weekend and all you do is cook. Then you put everything in containers and place it in the freezer. You pull it in the morning and it’s defrosted and ready to go when you get home. It takes less time to warm up something then it does to cook it from scratch.

Even though all the running you do for your children while they are playing sports is what you enjoy doing, eating right is something you may not think about. When you plan ahead and use one or more of the options above, your meals will be better and easier to do each day.

While all four of these options are good, each one may have a problem that could arise, so you’ll need to take that into consideration when you plan for the meals. The worst thing you can do is continually go out or have food that’s not good for you. You’ll ultimately pay for it in the long wrong and that’s not what you want to do.
