Eat more before and after exercising
Our third week is about the importance of fuel for your body especially when exercising or exerting yourself beyond normal activity!
Before your workout or any strenuous activity, plan on having a light carb and protein snack about 30 minutes before. Also try eating a small protein snack after your workout. You will feel energized and it will speed muscle growth and aide recovery.
Snacks and meals with carbs and protein are especially essential for children when they are actively playing all day. Their bodies need long lasting fuel to make it through the day. Remember to provide your children with plenty of water throughout the day as well.
