4 Ingredient Low Sugar Sports Popsicle
EAT DURING YOUR TRAINING OR COMPETITION
This low sugar sports popsicle is your solution to what is a common problem. It's Fun Time at your child's sport and you are being asked to bring the popsicles. Rather than turning to low nutrient commercial popsicles, why not make your own four ingredient low sugar sports popsicle? No fillers, preservatives or hidden ingredients. Just 100% fruit and fun. Normally we recommend having this before sports for young kids, but we realize traditions are hard to change. This is a step in the right direction if you are looking to move away from associating sport with sweet treats!
LET'S DO THIS!

TIP FROM ET4P
Keeping your body fueled right before and during longer training will peak your performance. Those are the times to have something quick and easy like our in-play snacks. Beware of grabbing a bar that is high in fiber or protein as it may hurt your performance.
