In the middle of footy final season, it’s a good time to remind players to eat well so they can perform at their best on game day. They need to take a water bottle, lunch and fruit to school. A good afternoon tea will help them to train well- try a milkshake, yoghurt, nuts, raisin toast or cheese and crackers.
Eating carbs the night before a grand final provide energy but don’t forget the colourful vegies and lean meat!
And finally, eating breakfast on grand final day will give them energy for the big game!
