Amy Rodriguez, two-time Olympic gold medalist and two-time mom, is no stranger to the juggling act familiar to so many parents. With so much going on, parents often struggle to keep their families well-fueled and well-fed throughout the day. Recently, Amy teamed up with Stonyfield and YourUpdateTV to provide some helpful tips on nourishing a young family.

As a professional athlete, Amy is all too aware of the importance of fueling yourself with clean, organic food. It’s just as important – if not more so – for growing children who need energy to take on their favorite activities. To help, she turns to useful on-the-go snacks such as Stonyfield YoKids yogurt pouches and squeezers. A tasty organic snack, YoKids provides parents with the peace of mind that their children are getting clean, organic ingredients and calcium, vitamin D and protein for growing bodies.

Amy discusses tips, tricks, and advice for parents on nourishing a young and active family, including the importance of organic and non GMO ingredients, finding balance, and nutritious, low sugar, lunch options for school.

About Amy Rodriguez:
Amy Rodriguez is one of the most electrifying soccer stars in the world. She began her career in 2004 for the USWNT as a 17-year-old phenom and has remained a cornerstone for Team USA ever since. Amy is best known for her blazing speed and the clutch goal scoring ability she demonstrates during the team’s biggest matches. She is one of only a few elite athletes to win a championship in every major tournament of their sport (NCAA, Olympics 2x, World Cup and Pro League 2x) making her one of the most decorated athletes in soccer history. In 2013 Amy inspired her team, country and fans in an all new way by becoming the youngest mother to play for the USWNT. Her emotional story depicting how hard she worked to balance her life and battle her way back on to the field after giving birth made her a media sensation. She would later turn the soccer world upside down when she scored two goals in the NWSL final to lead her team to a Championship one year after her son was born. Amy takes great pride in being a role model and empowering others to find balance while achieving their dreams. Representing her country and unifying American patriotism through the power of sport has been the greatest honor of her career.
