My daughter's holiday party is on Wednesday and I was asked this morning if I could bring something in. Her district (which serves mozzarella sticks for lunch) doesn't want us to send in 'junk'. I was told the rule can be ignored because several other moms have decided to but I still want to try to follow the rules. I was thinking of making a banana cream pie with my dd. We'd use real bananas, skim milk for the pudding and light whipped cream. Do you think that's still not nutritious enough for a winter holiday party?
Most areas won't allow homemade treats, it's a health department thing, so I would double check that first. I think your idea is cute, but I can tell you that serving a pie is going to be not-so-fun in the classroom. My suggestion would be to make banana cream pudding instead - use small clear cups and layer your pudding with nilla wafers and bananas and adding a bit of whipped cream to the top. This way, each kid just gets a cup (take piece of plastic wrap and go over the top of each, secure with a rubber band and add a ribbon to cover the rubber band to make them very cute and easy to transport). We made dirt pudding cups this way the kids loved it. I got around the homemade part because we brought the stuff and my students prepared their own pudding in the school kitchen. It was so much fun!
