Kids come home ravenous from school. Especially high school students. That is why it is so important to make smart grocery choices.
If junk food is in the house, it will be the first thing to be eaten after school. White breads, chips and cookies will initially raise blood sugar then there will come a sugar drop which will create fatigue. My 15 year old daughter dances daily. Hearty salads such as this create a light snack with sustaining power from from the healthy fats of the avocado, almonds and pumpkin seeds. The spinach dried wild blueberries and strawberries supply glucose and fiber. Perfect for a pre-practice food source.
