When I was a kid playing soccer, snacks were always oranges. The request wasn't to bring a snack, it actually specified oranges. But that was kids soccer circa 1983 so times may have changed.

when my dd played in 1999, the coaches asked that we bring oranges for snack, nothing else (well, drinks, but no other snack)

My mom used to send oranges and water as well. Other kids brought little debbie snack things and kool aid

I'll be watching this thread for ideas as well.

So far this season for my son's soccer games and my daughter's t-ball games we've had: granola bars, cheese sticks (blech - okay that's just my response! Hee, hee), crackers and peanut butter, fruit juices, fruit punch, and oranges.

We always bring homemade granola bars and 100% juice. My son is OK with it even though some of his teammates have made comments about not liking them. There are no rules or suggestions on what to bring and it's typical for parents to bring chips/doritos/little debbie/ and kool-aid; one parent brought cans of soda. It stinks b/c my son doesn't eat most of the snacks that parents supply. One parent brings fruit-bananas or oranges; otherwise we bring a snack for him as an alternative to the cr*p that is offered.

Mama to three wonderful boys and a fabulous baby girl.
My heartfelt thanks to all those that have donated milk to others; you are amazing

we always had orange slices. it is like a soccer tradition.

i think fruit is always good. anything else just sounds gross in the middle of running and playing. Just be sure it is sliced fruit. maybe grapes. those were a huge treat for me as a kid.

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

we did oatmeal cookies. i figured those are mainstream enough that people wouldn't refuse to eat them and dd would feel bad - but not buying garbage either.

I think fruit is always good, oranges, grapes. Or even dried fruit like raisins, apples or apricots. You could even make homemade trail mix w/fruit and nuts! Just an idea.

Same for me when I was a kid. All of the moms would bring a big bowl of cut up oranges when it was their turn.

we always had oranges too.... and water, and sometimes like capri sun or something after the game, but only water during..... those oranges fresh out of the ice chest were like the best thing ever at half time

Our co-op sells organic fruit roll-ups. I think fresh fruit is a great choice though!
