Healthy snacks for Heights soccer

This year the soccer program through the Cleveland Heights Recreation League did something revolutionary. It asked parents to provide all snacks from the fresh fruits group and to serve water for hydration in reusable containers.

Kids ate mandarin oranges, grapes, bananas, strawberries, watermelon and lots of Ohio apples. Each week Coach Sean Sullivan reinforced the concept of choosing healthy snacks with the soccer players and their parents. As an organization promoting sports and fitness, the soccer program also encouraged appropriate food choices for optimal health. 

"It's great that the program could help us all get that extra serving of fresh fruits and veggies into our kids." said soccer mom Shifa Isaacs. "I want to thank Recreation Center Commissioner Larry Shaw and Coach Sullivan for taking care of our kids' health."
