The snack at church tonight was jello and of course I couldn't let my kids be left out. But if they had that junk none of us would survive the wrath of Jason. It's bad enough he was completely overwhelmed and overstimulated because all of the kids were crazy tonight. We have a bunch of special needs kids all of the sudden too.
Anyways, my kids got jello but it was safe! Pureed strawberries and agar agar. They loved it and no nasty stuff to trigger bad behaviors!

When we got candy at church growing up, we would take it to our mom and she would give us a candy from the health food store in exchange. We never had a problem doing that.

I used to do that but now we don't do any sugar.  We do evaporated cane syrup on very rare occassions like holidays and birthdays.  Even stuff from the health food store has sugar, honey, agave, and other sweeteners we do not use.

I threw about 2 cups of strawberries in the food processor and pureed them until it was as close to a liquid as I could get. Mine were frozen so they were a bit slushy lol. Warmed them on the stove. Added about a tablespoon of agar agar and brought it to a boil. Put it in a container in the fridge to cool. That's it! Almost like normal terrible for you jello to make :)
