Today was my turn to send snack for Doodle’s class. Sometimes I ask him what he had for snack and I cringe when he says things like: Cheetos, candy bars, cookies, Lucky Charms cereal. Those types of junk food snacks are just empty calories that spike sugar levels. They teach kids to reach for sugary or salty empty snacks instead of something healthy, nutrient rich.
I sent in apple slices soaked in orange juice. And you know what? The kids LOVED them. Several came up to me after school and asked if I could bring them in the next day too.
