Have you tried DOLE Fruit Squish’ems yet? These are a favorite of my kids. We just finished our Spring session of Soccer and Football and one of the weeks the snacks brought to the game were DOLE Fruit Squish’ems — the kids devoured them!! Both were asking for me to get them the next time we were at the store!
These have become a before game snack and an after game snack! My son plays both football and soccer back to back, so having something easy and quick is important. And of course healthy! We love the DOLE Fruit Squish’ems as I can just toss a few in my bag!
DOLE Fruit Squish’ems has partnered with two-time FIFA Women’s World Cup winner and mom, Brandi Chastain and the American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) to help soccer families across the country gear up for game days.

- Kids learn to be a good sport just as much from the sideline and stands as on the field, so teach them by example to always be respectful to everyone on the field, offer encouragement, and be gracious whether you win or lose.
- It’s important to be both physically and mentally prepared for game day. I always make sure my son has a good, nutritious meal the night before the game and encourage him to practice visualizing making great plays. When you’ve already imagined them happening, they’re that much easier to recreate on the field!
- Practice does more than pay off on the field. It teaches us the importance of going out there and earning what we get. So always try to encourage your children and be supportive when they’re putting in that extra effort to practice and improve!
