As the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team gears up to face Japan in the final of the 2010 World Cup this Sunday, soccer mania is taking over young and old alike in America. And in the midst of all that excitement is the general rush-about lifestyle of young soccer players and their parents while they’re in the full swing of their outdoor soccer season.

In a rush to get to the soccer fields? Fuel your soccer brood with these tasty, easy-and-fast-to-make meal options. After all, potatoes are rich in glycogen — providing young children with a healthy energy source that also helps their bodies quickly recover after a tough game.
