Mikki Lee Martin says you’ll need a box of crackers for this warm-up—but your young athletes won’t be eating them.
In keeping with teaching our kids about good food choices, we advise parents to give healthy snacks to their kids (sausage and apples) rather than empty carbs like crackers. Focus work that follows this warm-up should be about better snack choices and defining “empty” carbs.
To help kids understand good snack choices while having fun, Making Ant Food allows athletes a chance to “interact with nature” while they learn.
