Take time to plan nutritious meals and snacks for your family, even if you're on your way.

Nutrition tips to make sure your family eats healthy food on the go

Q: How can I prepare healthy snacks for my family during an active sports season or summer?

a: A proper and flexible nutrition plan is one of the greatest keys to success for your family. However, finding time to plan meals can be very challenging with schedules on the go. Your child’s nutrition directly affects his performance on and off the field, as well as disease and injury prevention. Look at your calendar and make time to plan nutritious meals and snacks for you and your family. Meal prep helps save time and maintain an overall healthy diet.

It can be helpful to set aside 10 to 15 minutes on the weekend to plan meals and snacks for the week, along with planning your family’s calendar. First, choose the meals and snacks you want to eat for the next week or two and create a grocery list – your kids can help! Next, decide on a day when you will prepare food. You can roast a chicken, bake a casserole, or make a yogurt parfait. Finally, pack everything into portable, portioned meals so your food is ready for the next time you need to go outside.
