This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Nesquik and Latina Bloggers Connect. However, all cheers, soccer passion and opinions are my own.
You know how passionate we are about fútbol around here. Soccer is a family affair, and so the only real reason the kids were looking forward to getting back to school was that it is also the start of soccer season! I confess that their soccer practice is my favorite time of the day too. I love sitting under a shady tree, cheering on the kids, having a chat with the other soccer moms, and having our post game snacks together at the park. A trophy like activity for the entire family 🙂
My cousin tried out for the USA FIFA team and his experience has taught us a lot in preparing our future Messi, James or Ronaldo be healthy as can be. Here is how we try tipping the balance in favor of the home team even more: after an intense practice or game, it’s crucial to maximize recovery within 30 minutes with both carbohydrates and proteins. Well, fortunately, low fat chocolate milk, offers the right amount of carbs and protein that an athlete needs. It also replenishes the body as it nourishes tired muscles and replaces what is lost in sweat. That definitely gets me focused on our after-game snack game plan. I am ready even before we leave home now that I know The Importance Of The Right Snack After Soccer Practice.
I have been taking ready to drink Nesquik Chocolate milk bottles to our soccer field for our post game cool down and snack time. I have been doing this because it is so convenient to grab the perfect sized 8 ounce Nesquik 10-pack bottles to share with the team, as I rush to get the kids soccer ready and out the door. They are a favorite at home anyway. This means that smiles are guaranteed for our after-practice snack when the children share the highlights of practice and we all high five each other. It turns out that I got a very big high five from my cousin because studies suggest low fat chocolate milk, like Nesquik, may contain the ideal 3:1 ratio of carbohydrates-to-protein that can help restore tired muscles after a tough practice or game. This right balance provides young athletes with the nourishment they need after a hard game. GOOOOOOOL! Score for the home team 🙂
There is no doubt that Nesquik is a quick and easy way to get kids the nutrition they need. A game at a time or practice at a time makes for #QuikWins as we ensure our smaller athletes get all they need to enjoy their love for soccer and excel on and off the field. Nesquik chocolate milk is available in pre-made 8 oz. serving bottles full of all the same nutritional benefits plus the great taste kids love. Its convenient size makes it portable and a great option when packing lunches and nutritious snacks for after school activities.
So let’s cheer to muscles restored and mom-wins in the nutritious snack department! No red cards needed here because Nesquik is a trusted choice among parents and coaches while loved by kids. It is also the official chocolate milk of the American Youth Soccer Organization and US Youth Soccer. I say we can definitively celebrate a big victory all season long, don’t you?
