Our schools don’t allow for baked goods or sugary treats on special days or as rewards. Therefore none of my amazing cakes, cookies, and novelties shall grace my child’s school room. It is something that I can agree to, but I must admit that I do so begrudgingly. Making food the enemy is never a healthy outlook on nutrition. This isn’t the time nor the place, I press on!
We made fruit mosaics for my daughter’s seventh birthday this week. I happened to choose her favorite fruits and went with it. I chopped and chopped, lined them up and sent them off to school with cocktail cups, forks, and napkins and voila! I even received a thank you card for adhering to the Wellness Policy. My daughter was very proud, and loved being part of the project. Enjoy!
