Children's sports and sports snacks seem to go hand in hand, but should they?

It's a proven fact that healthy children do better in schools. Children's sports play an integral role in keeping children healthy. It fills the gap left by the closing of physical education classes. It gets children moving in a fun, safe enviroment. It also aids in academic success. Yet, the benefits of children's sports can be offset by the snacks served during the event.

Since 1971, CSPI has been a strong advocate for nutrition and health, food safety, alcohol policy, and sound science.

Founded by executive director Michael Jacobson, Ph.D. and two other scientists, CSPI carved out a niche as the organized voice of the American public on nutrition, food safety, health and other issues during a boom of consumer and environmental protection awareness in the early 1970s. CSPI has long sought to educate the public, advocate government policies that are consistent with scientific evidence on health and environmental issues, and counter industry’s powerful influence on public opinion and public policies.

Connect with CSPI on their website, Twitter and Facebook.

The YMCA believes that lasting personal and social change comes about when everyone works together. Every day, they work side-by-side with the community to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body, their impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child and when a community comes together for the common good.
