A forty minute game(or even less in the case of the U5s) and they really need a half-time snack and an after-game snack? Especially since games are either right after breakfast, right before lunch, or right after lunch.
But whatever, that’s the norm, the kids can have their snack. Whatever.
I only say “whatever” when I truly don’t care as I seriously HATE that word.
But then, because of Pinterest, not only are there soccer snacks, but there are fancy soccer snacks.
Cookies and cupcakes with soccer ball designs or with each child’s jersey number somehow put onto whatever snack is made.
Or snacks that are constructed to look like a goal.
Someone stop the madness.
Already, I have to worry about getting three boys to their games, usually on the same day, sometimes at the same time, and sometimes on fields that are a half hour apart from each other. And what the heck with soccer socks? They make it near impossible for me to just yell at my boys to get themselves ready for their games!
This is our go-to snack when it’s our turn: orange slices for half-time and then a juice box and something simple like crackers or granola bars for post-game.
What do you bring when it’s your turn to be snack mom?
*Btw, if you are one of those super crafty snack moms: can you cover my snack day, too? 😉
