A few years ago, the members of a parenting group I belong to were discussing a letter sent home regarding school Halloween treats. This particular school was concerned with fat count and all treats had to be within certain fat guidelines. Other schools have allergy restrictions or limits on sugar. Some schools require only pre-packaged food for insurance reasons. This feels like another parenting hoop to jump through; but with so many treat-filled holidays, it is understandable.
That year, I and most of the parents in my group were leaning toward Clementine Jack-o’lanterns. However, I wondered,
“What if everyone brought Clementines as their treat?”
That’s a LOT of sticky clementines. So, I searched the web and found some alternate ideas for school Halloween treats. Not every one of these ideas is going to fit every dietary demand and some will be less expensive than others. Hopefully this round up will give us some ideas.
I’ve just finished packing my first week of school lunches for four kids. With the start of a brand new school year, the shine is still on slapping together custom sandwiches (though trust me, that’ll be over by mid-September). When the new has worn off and the kids are sick of seeing the same old when they sit down at the lunch table, it’s time to surprise them with these fun Back-to-School Lunch Rollups from Shelagh at SheCooksDesign. They’re great for kids who can’t tolerate bread and a slick way to sneak more veggies into their lunch box. They make great appetizers, too, or are perfect for a picnic.
