In the elevator at work, I read this tip from a nutrition counselor for kids: Instead of traditional Christmas cookies, why not help your children decorate pieces of whole wheat bread with fat-free cream cheese and vegetables!
Sure, I think there’s too much sugar available this time of year and in general, but seriously, are you trying to depress children? That’s like when you’re kid wants a Barbie, and you give them like a Sassy Sue or a My Little Pony. They KNOW it’s not the same thing, dude. Just SKIP the friggin cookies, don’t do this sad, pale imitation of life as we know it.
