The pre-race food is not for me (give me some pizza and ice creams please), but for my son, age 9, who will participate in the ever growing number of kid triathlons this summer. Most of these events are 100 to 200 yd swim, 3 to 5 mile bike, .5 to 1 mile run. They are over very quickly. The problem is most begin at 7 am. Kids wake up hungry. Any ideas what he should or should not eat, and how early before the race he can chow down and not end up sick or with a side stitch? Thx. N.M.
