Campus Improv Eats - Maddy

So now that the kids are away from school, we get the opportunity to see what some of gthe food choices are like at home. I had a conversation with Maddy Wesner this morning after her workout and we dug into the nutrition side of things, and how she needs to keep balance. Here's the meal she had when she got home:

Here's the breakdown:

  • Protein - 1 cheese stick
  • Carbohydrate - grapes and strawberries
  • Fat - peanut butter

The verdict. Win. Yes the peanut butter is probably Jif. The cheesesticks came from a cow that was probably not grassfed and sprinkled with Tibetan holy water. And she might be a tad low on the protein. But this is a great start towards balance. In the camp of quality vs. quantity, I would love to have both. If I had to pick one for someone to start with, it would be quantity because of 1) it can be applied more realistically to situations kids will see such as lunch room, restaurant, friend's house, etc. and 2) it starts to build the habit of categorizing food.

Next time. Add one more cheese stick and you should be golden. Maybe a few extra grapes or strawberries too.

Looks more like a snack than a meal to me. A meal would needed more protein and fruits/veggies. For example, a chicken breast with a few strawberries and broccoli with that amount of peanut butter.

Agree, too small. But decent food choices

I assume this is what all my 130 pound football players eat when they tell me they had a huge dinner
