Healthy Meals on the Run
I've recently found myself entering the world of the "soccer mom". Though my spouse is the one that has been taking the lead on coordinating schedules for practices and games, this will soon change. With two working parents, two kids participating in soccer, two evening practices per week, and game day on Friday evenings and Saturday...you get the picture! Juggling schedules for picking up the kids from school and daycare is one thing, but to try to fit in a nutritious supper on soccer days is mind boggling. For us, there really is not even slack in the schedule to allow going home to prepare a meal and feed the kids before practice. This leaves me wondering how others cope with afterschool activities and feeding the family. I'd love to hear your meals-on-the go ideas. Do you feed them post practice or do you try to squeeze it in before?
