If you've heard the term, "Division of Responsibility", it was all started by Ellyn Satter. She has helped educate nutrition professionals and parents on how to best feed our children. The Division of Responsibility divides up parent's job and kid's jobs with eating and meal times. "Parents are responsible for the what, when, and where of feeding; children are responsible for the how much and whether of eating." (source: Child of Mine). For a step-by-step guide at every age group on feeding your child, go to Ellyn Satter Institute.

I love her 20 Healthy Team Snacks free download! I can relate to her quest to change the team snack after games. When my boys started playing sports, I was surprised at the team snacks brought out after the game and often brought watermelon which the kids cobbled down. Help make the change on your team while helping our kids learn how to fuel themselves well after exercising!
