What to Know About Eating Before Swimming Lessons:

  • Children should wait 30 minutes to an hour after eating before starting lessons.
  • Children should wait one to two hours after having a bottle of milk or other dairy products before starting lessons.
  • If your child is hungry before lessons a light snack of simple carbs- crackers, bread, or dry cereal is best.
  • Please make sure your child is well hydrated before lessons and stops drinking water about 30 minutes before lessons. Drinking a lot right before lessons can give children stomach cramps or they may have to get out and use the restroom during lessons.
  • If your child isn’t feeling well, please reschedule your lesson!
  • Each child is different, and you know your child best! These tips can be a helpful starting point, but be sure to monitor your child and adjust as needed.
