With the prevalence of childhood obesity, most parents are keeping a close eye on what goes in their kids’ mouths. Food is such a social thing that we are always celebrating and eating something—a cupcake for a birthday here, a lollipop for a good job there, a sweet for showing up to an activity. It never seems to be just one sweet snack.
So next time there is a celebration and you have to send a treat, why not send something besides a cupcake? Celebrate over berry cups, yogurt-dipped strawberry pops or fruit skewers—something you can feel good about feeding them. For kids (and adults!), it’s all about presentation. Make it look special, add a personal tag, and you’ll have a hit—and it’ll be healthy.
