Pumpkin is everywhere: pumpkin pie, pumpkin soup, pumpkin smoothies, even pumpkin enchiladas! For athletes, this is more than just hype. Pumpkin packs a nutrient punch to help fuel athletic performance! Both the pumpkin puree and pumpkin seeds are edible and provide important nutrients for an athlete including potassium, magnesium, iron, and zinc.

Potassium is needed for athletes to support proper muscle contraction, maintain fluid balance, and prevent muscle cramps.

Magnesium is also necessary for maintaining muscle and nerve function, helping athletes reduce fatigue and speed recovery.

Iron, found in the pumpkin seeds, is essential for transporting oxygen from the lungs to the working muscles. Low iron intake can cause an athlete to experience shortness of breath and fatigue quickly.

Zinc is also found in the seeds of pumpkins and promotes immune function in athletes as well as supports wound healing after an injury.

ATTENTION STUDENT ATHLETES:
It is back to school time! You may have your new shoes, backpack, and school supplies ready to go but do you have your snacks/lunches ready to keep you at the top of your game?

For many student athletes, school lunch may not be enough food to keep you full and energized for the day. Here are some snack ideas/tips to keep you energized and improve your athletic performance!

Backpack snacks would include:
- Trail Mix
- Energy Bites (check out my recent post on recipes for these)
- Kind Bar
- Apple and Cheese Stick
- Hard-boiled egg, crackers, grapes, carrots
- Pretzel and Hummus Packs

Tips to Strengthen School Lunch:
- Ask for extra portions
- pack a turkey or PB&J sandwich if extra portions are not available
- Drink milk with your lunch
- Add a yogurt or drinkable yogurt
- Add a fun snack like fruit leather, fruit snacks, or goldfish
