When it comes to preparing for Regiment rehearsals and camps, you know that it’s important to pre-hydrate and not to have dairy, greasy foods, or carbonated beverages, but that eliminates a lot of common items for breakfast. So, your student may be wondering what CAN I have for breakfast? Well, our medical officer has come up with a few suggestions for healthy foods that will give your child the energy they need without upsetting their stomach while rehearsing in the Florida heat.
We hope these suggestions are helpful to you and your student(s). If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our medical officer, Winston Warren at firstname.lastname@example.org.
