As if feeding growing kids isn’t challenging enough at times, keeping kids who are really active fed, satisfied, and fit can be especially tough. And when your kids are busy with athletics, chances are that you are too.

Being super busy with practice, games, matches, and the just-for-fun activities your kids love can make it difficult to ensure that your young athletes are getting proper nutrition that they need to stay healthy.

These recipes are quick and easy to make. Plus, besides being delicious, they are rich in all of the nutrients that young athletes need.

1. The Power Omelet

Eggs are super quick to cook and rich in nutrients and protein. Making an omelet is a fast way to load your little athletes up on the protein their muscles need.

If you through in power ingredients like cheese, veggies, and meats, then your kids will also get the carbs and vitamins that their bodies need to keep up with all of the activities they love.

2. Chips and Salsa

Whipping out some chips and salsa between practices or games is a great idea. Flavorful and refreshing, the vegetables in salsa offer kids a bunch of nutrients at once.

In the meantime, the traditional tortilla chips served with salsa are salty enough to encourage your kids to hydrate and have the carbs to give your kids the energy to go-go-go!
