Teaching Tuesday: Healthy Snacking Options

If you or your child is a swimmer, you know just how hungry swimmers get during the day. Even with three meals a day, snacks are important for athletes to get continuous fueling throughout the day and succeed in their training and competitions. As swim workouts are ramping back up in Georgia, there is a great opportunity to create healthy snacking habits heading into the upcoming season. Fruits and vegetables are always a great source of healthy fuel and can satisfy a small craving between meals. 

Here are a few healthy snacking ideas:

  • Smoothies
  • Bagels 
  • Yogurt
  • Applesauce
  • Cheese sticks
  • Granola protein bites
  • Any fruit
  • Any vegetable (tasty when paired with low-fat dressings and peanut butter)
