October is Sports Nutrition Month at MomsTEAM. We invited some old friends and some new ones to share their wisdom about nutrition and offer always on-the-go sports parents fresh ideas and choices for healthy, easy-to-make breakfasts, lunches, dinners and between-meal snacks for your active children.
Today we hear from one of MomsTEAM's regular contributors, author, chef, and founder of Direction Five Health, Patty James:
MomsTEAM: What is the best snack to pack in a sports-active kid's school backpack or gym bag?
The founder of DirectionFive Health, a national culinary and nutrition program for kids says parents can get kids excited about health and fitness by being a role model. When children see their parents making healthy choices, she says, they will too.
