Skill work:

Food is Fuel: Even for Kids, it’s important to start to understand how different foods help our bodies to be healthy and strong: Foods like Carbohydrates and Fats help give our body energy.  Protein helps repair damage and build muscle.  Learning what foods are good sources for Protein, Carbohydrate, and Fat will help us make good choice about what to eat throughout the day.  To practice this, table three cones (or boxes or whatever is convenient) as each of the three macronutrient groups.  Athletes start on a line.  When the trainer calls out a food item (broccoli, fish, avocado, etc), athletes run to the place that they feel best represents the macronutrient category of that food.  Feel free to discuss briefly between rounds and remember that some foods are significant sources of more than one macronutrient group.  If more appropriate, simplify to “energy” and “building blocks” or some similar phrases to stay away from technical words like “Carbohydrate”
