5 High Protein Snacks for Kids Before Sports

5 High Protein Snacks for Kids Before Sports

Spring sports are back and that means hectic schedules and less time to keep our kiddos properly fueled. 

A balanced, highly nutritious snack is especially important before activities like sports games and practices. Unfortunately, these are often the times we're most rushed.

If you're tight on time, here are 5 high protein snack ideas for your kiddos. 


1. Almonds

Almonds are a nutrient powerhouse. They're packed with protein, healthy fats, and even some fiber. The crunch makes them fun for kiddos and they're delicious too! 

2. Hummus and Veggies

Chickpeas are today's superfood because they're plant-based, protein-packed, and super versatile. Pair hummus with your kiddo's favorite cracker or veggie and you're good to go!

3. Yogurt Parfait

Choose your favorite low sugar yogurt and pair with fruit (we recommend blueberries, strawberries, or raspberries!) and you have yourself a nutritious and delicious snack for the kiddos. Healthy fats, fiber, and protein ensure your kiddos are filled up so they can focus on their sport. 

4. Hard Boiled Eggs

Easy to prepare, portable, and packed with nutrition, eggs are always a win! Try sprinkling salt or an everything seasoning on top to make them even more delicious for the kiddos. 

5. Nutrition Bars... Zeek Bars! 

Nutrition bars have exploded in popularity and for good reason. If you choose the right one, they're packed with nutrition, taste delicious, and are super convenient. We, of course, recommend Zeek Bars. With 9g protein, 7g sugar, and 7g fiber, Zeek Bars are designed to keep kiddos better fueled for sports and other activities. Say goodbye to sugary granola bars– we packed real nutrition into these kids bars! 

Whether it's after school, before practice, or on-the-go, these are 5 protein-packed snack ideas to keep your kiddo better fueled for when it matters most!
