A Few Healthy Treat Ideas

Over the years, I've come up with a few great treat ideas that are healthy to boot. One year we made carrot cake cupcakes. The kids loved them because they were just like cupcakes and the teacher approved because they were actually little healthy carrot cakes. Another year we brought in a huge fruit tray (the kind you can get in the produce section of most grocery stores). It was a bit costly, but the kids absolutely loved it. If you really can't find a suitable snack idea, do what we did for our daughter. When she was in preschool, there were two boys in her class with severe allergies so we didn't want to risk anything. Instead of bringing in a snack, we brought in a goody bag filled with an assortment of crayons, pencils, stickers, etc. The kids absolutely loved them.

umm... Although I love the goody bags and other ideas - Carrot cakes are totally BAD for you. Very high in fat, and also very high in calories. Can we say Cream Cheese frosting?
