Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray both flatbreads with non-stick baking spray. Spread a thin layer of butter over the two flatbreads. Mix together the cinnamon and sugar and then sprinkle evenly on top of the flatbreads. Bake the flatbread for about 7 minutes. Remove from oven. Top each flatbread with 1 cup of sliced strawberries. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave for about 30 seconds and then stir. Add additional time if needed in 15 second increments and then drizzle on top of strawberries and flatbreads. Cut each flatbread through the middle on each side creating 4 slices for each flatbread. Enjoy!

Sports bagSchool is almost out and summer sports are in! Summertime brings more outdoor play, sport camps and games. Here are the top tips to keep you kids packed with the 5 top essentials to keep them safe, well fueled and ready to perform their best!

1) Sunscreen
Sunscreen is an absolute must to apply several times each day! With practices, games and camps during peak hours of sunlight, it is important to keep their skin protected. Make sure you have them apply a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 and with the concerns about the sprays, I suggest a lotion. We always try to apply before we get in the car so I can make sure we get it all covered. Then put it in the sports bag so it can be reapplied in a few hours.

2) BODYARMOR sports drink

Hydration should be a focus all year but it is especially important in the summer for young athletes. I recommend drinking BODYARMOR natural sports drinks in the summer so a young athlete can not only rehydrate but also refuel. In addition, research has shown that kids hydrate better when it tastes good and it will also help them delay fatigue by giving them a steady dose of energy to help maintain blood sugar. BODYARMOR is different than other sports drinks on the market, as it has NO artificial colors or preservatives and tastes amazing! It is perfect to throw in their bag for superior hydration in the summer sun. BUY NOW and use code MITZI2015 for FREE shipping!

3) Fresh fruit

During high levels of activity, it is important for your young athlete to have proper nutrition in order for them to perform their best! By packing fresh fruit, they won’t go hungry, and the natural sugar in the fruit will give them the boost they need to keep their game strong! Some fruit favorites of kids can be: watermelon, frozen grapes, strawberries, and bananas.

4) Nuts + seeds
Nuts and seeds are great options to add to their bag since they are non-perishable and provide fiber and protein to keep your child sustained during their activity! Plus, they take no preparation, and that is always a plus! Buy sunflower seeds or pistachios and let your kid try a variety of nuts and seeds to find their faves. Getting enough protein can also help boost their immune systems to make sure they stay healthy this summer!

5) Chilly Pad Cooling Towel
The Chilly Pad™ Cooling Towel is a product that uses moisture to cool you down. When wet, the towel allows the water to evaporate and cool to the touch! Who wouldn’t want this is in their bag in the heat of summer?

Sports Drinks vs Water for Young Athletes
