Chocolate Milk!

I have had three parents ask me in the last 5 days what I suggest kids drink/eat after a hard game.  My girls both play soccer.  An hour long game with lots running/sweating does not require special hydration/repletion.  Nevertheless, our “go-to” beverage is always chocolate milk.  Unless, of course, they convince us they need a chocolate milk shake!

Chocolate milk is perfect.  The protein, carbohydrate, vitamin and mineral content of chocolate milk is ideal for replacing fluid loss and helping to repair sore muscles.  Other, less asked for suggestions, include:  Turkey sandwich on wheat bread, greek yogurt with fruit, apples or bannanas with peanut butter, cheese stick and whole wheat crackers.
