Recipes for soccer kids.

Young soccer players should eat meals containing foods from all food groups. This will give them the nutrients and energy they need to grow and compete. How can you help them stay at the top of their game with the nutrients they need? Here’s a suggestion we think kids will love: Get a game-day nutrition assist with our delicious Asian-Style Turkey and Green Bean Sauté! It can help young athletes by giving them the carbohydrates they need before a soccer match.1 It also provides protein for the growth and repair of muscles.2

These recipes have the ingredients you want to support your soccer player’s active lifestyle. They’re easy to make and they taste great too!

Plato Tip: The key to victory is to eat like a champion.
