Our family is on the move at all times. From soccer, swim lessons, ballet and more we are usually moving and I would not have it any other way.We have a bag that is packed with non-perishables that we bring with us when we are doing our after school or weekend activities.
For me as a busy mom, it is imperative that I have everything organized and ready to go at a moments notice. I have also found it helpful to have different bags for different events. For example- a bag to go to the pond, a bag for soccer, a bag for swim lessons, etc. this way we know what we need is in those bags and the most important part to these bags is hydration and we look to BODYARMOR for that.
Now that the weather is getting warmer it is even more important. So let me give you a little idea of what is in our soccer bag:
BODYARMOR – This premium sports drink is a healthier alternative to traditional sports drinks because it is made with no artificial sweeteners or flavors. It is potassium-packed electrolytes, low in sodium and packed with vitamins.
FIRST AID KIT – We always have a first aid kit that is packed with bandaids, ice packs and alcohol swabs as well as some gauze. With our family it is imperative- we are definitely accident prone and of course everything feels better with a bandage on it.
SUNSCREEN and BUG SPRAY – Oh my goodness, we have sunscreen everywhere my little girl certainly gets burned with her pale skin so we make sure that they are always protected from the sun. On a side note- the bugs love me- I always need to make sure I have it handy otherwise I will be covered with bites for months!
NON-PERISHABLE SNACKS – We keep a handful of snacks ready to go whether it be pretzels, nuts, crackers, peanut butter, etc. there is always something in there ready togo in case hunger strikes which it usually does!
A BOOK– I always keep a book in these bags because I love to read but sometimes I just don’t have the time so if we are at practice and I can carve out 10-20 minutes while the kids are doing something to read- it really brightens my day.
As you can see, being prepared is a must for me. We live in the middle of the woods so we always have to stock up when we go shopping so it is important to have everything on hand for when we need it. We really are super busy with 3 kids and both parents working it is important to stay nutritionally hydrated. BODYARMOR is a must for our family. We love their 9-great tasting flavors: fruit punch, orange mango, strawberry banana, tropical punch, blackout berry, mixed berry, grape, watermelon strawberry and lemonade. The tropical punch is a family favorite. Sign up to receive a coupon to try your favorite variety.
Both of my sons definitely appreciate that BODYARMOR water is a premium sport water designed by athletes, for athletes. BODYARMOR is the brand of choice for athletes and has assembled an impressive team of young, superstar athletes such as James Harden, Mike Trout, Dustin Johnson, Andrew Luck, Richard Sherman, Dez Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, Buster Posey, Skylar Diggins and several others. With these all stars on board how can you not give it a try!
