Shortly after Norrin was diagnosed with autism, he was evaluated by an occupational and physical therapist. The evaluations concluded that Norrin had weak muscle tone and didn’t have the coordination of his typical peers. He not only had difficulty running, Norrin couldn’t throw a ball, kick or jump. All of movements required in a sport like soccer.
My husband, Joseph, is a huge sports fan. And he wanted to share his love of sports with his son. It was important that Norrin learn how to throw, run, jump and kick.
Over the years, with many hours of therapy, practice and a lot of patience Norrin has learned. But he still requires practice with fine and gross motor to continue strengthening his muscles.
Soccer has been a great way to improve on his coordination. Kicking around a soccer ball is a combination of therapy, fun and exercise. He’s not on a team but that doesn’t stop us from playing whenever or where ever we can.
After playing Norrin is exhausted – both physically and mentally. Playing any kind of sport takes everything he has to focus, follow directions and concentrate. He needs to restore his strength and energy.
Nesquik is the perfect post game drink.
Nesquik is a quick and easy way to get kids the nutrition they need.
After a tough practice or game, studies suggest that low fat chocolate milk, like Nesquik, may contain the ideal 3:1 ratio of carbohydrates-to-protein that can help restore tired muscles. This right balance provides your young athlete with the nourishment they need after a hard game.
Nesquik is the drink that keeps Norrin happy and healthy.
Nesquik is free from artificial colors and sweeteners. It provides kids with 40% daily value for calcium and 8 grams of protein.
Norrin loves drinking it and I feel good about giving it to him. Nesquik is the drink I grew up drinking. One of my favorite quick lunches is still a Strawberry Nesquik with a PB&J sandwich. It’s great when we can share our love of Nesquik together.
Nesquik chocolate milk is available in pre-made 8 oz. serving bottles full of all the same nutritional benefits plus the great taste kids love. Its convenient size makes it portable and a great option when packing lunches and nutritious snacks for after school activities.
As a ready-to-drink chocolate milk, I can just toss a bottle in my bag for days when we’re out and about. With a handful of almonds or walnuts and a banana, it’s the perfect on-the-go snack.
