Whether it is as a soccer snack, cheerleading snack or a snack for some other type of sport, selecting the best snacks for kids can be a challenge. It is important to take certain conditions under consideration when selecting the proper snack for the entire team. In this way, all children on the team will be able to enjoy the snack.

 

 

Food Allergies

When a child has a food allergy, the immune system treats a certain food which is normally benign as truly dangerous to the individual. Common food allergies include nuts, seafood, milk/dairy products, eggs, soy and wheat. Milk and dairy products may cause a problem due to lactose intolerance in certain individuals. Avoiding milk products can solve this problem when selecting that cheerleading snack for your child.

Nut free foods are important to take into consideration. A nut free snack can take the form of fruits and vegetables. Other common nut free foods which can be used are fruit roll-ups, cookies, pretzels, chips, crackers, jello and pudding. On a hot summer day, frozen snacks such as popsicles and ice cream may be the perfect nut free snack. When making a selection for snacks for kids, it is important to keep all allergies under consideration as well as any food restrictions as a result of a child’s religion.

 

 

Religious Food Restrictions

Different religious groups have different eating practices including food restrictions. One type of food restriction to take into consideration is the Jewish practice of kosher food restrictions. Foods have to be prepared a certain way and cannot contain pork or shellfish. Meat and dairy cannot be eaten at the same time. The best kosher snacks include fruits, vegetables, rice cakes, popcorn, certified kosher cookies and graham crackers.

 

Look for logos like this one from the Orthodox Union to insure that your snack will meet religious food restrictions.

Other Considerations

Another consideration for a soccer snack is if a child is vegetarian. In addition to avoiding meat, certain vegetarians do not eat eggs, dairy products or processed foods. There are varying levels of vegetarians so people who avoid meat products may eat eggs.

It may be helpful to consult with the parent of the child with food restrictions to see the types of snacks the child usually eats. Fruits and vegetables are often a good choice as a soccer snack for the entire team. Or do a google search for nut free snacks, or whatever particular allergy or food concern you are interested in. The selection may take some time but it will be well worth it to see that all the children are included and can enjoy the snack you bring.
