Whoa, Momma!

Skip the junk food and try these easy game snacks



Soccer Kids are back to school and back on the field and that makes it doubly hard for a family to get a healthy meal in between homework and running to the ballfield. This list of healthy snacks to keep in your cooler is a good place to start. And in this story, you can find out what student athletes are eating -- and what they actually should be eating.

One of the ways to work in a sort-of family dinner is to pack like it's a picnic and have a meal on the sidelines with cold chicken, fruit and salads. I tend to go the route of staving off hunger with a snack before and/or after and getting home for a decent meal. Not that I don't do it far too often, but going through a drive-through lane for fast food after a healthy afternoon of exercise feels like a failure to me.
