Kids can really vulnerable to post exercise hypoglycemia. This is not some mild drifting hypo, but sudden sharp drops. I found that I was having these 2 hours after weight training. It didn't really happen with other, milder forms of exercise. I found that eat a good meal after workout virtually eliminated my problems. Not a snack, a meal.
