Softball tournament day is a big one for you and your kids. It usually means waking up early and enjoying the sun all day long. Make sure your softball tournament day is perfect by bringing the best snacks for you and your family.
“Fresh fruit is fast food!” Apples, grapes, and tangerinesare all easy to pack and are usually crowd-pleasers for all ages. With a little planning ahead,seasonal favorites like watermelon, cantaloupe and peaches can work great too, and are very affordable.
Remember good protein sources for your athletes; they need energy that will stay with them for the long haul. Great portable options are: trail mix, beef jerky, cheese sticks, lunch meat, or peanut butter for dipping fruit slices in.
The real trick is keeping all the snacks cool all day. Our favorite ways to keep our best snacks in their best shape on softball tournament day:
- The rolling cooler.
- We prefer the soft ones since they fold down a little better when not in use. The wheels and handles make these the ultimate in portability.
- Functional ice packs. Make the most of your space and meet your ice needs by freezing water bottles and juice boxes the night before. Consider packing tube popsicles as part of your ice so that you have a fun treat handy.
