Both my kids have snack time - I think this is common now days. The school sends home a note that says send only healthy snacks and has many suggestions. I would have sent a healthy snack without this caveat. So my kids are there with their Thermos of cold water and fruit HOWEVER, they are sitting at tables where every kids is eating FUNYUNS, CHIPS, DONUTS and one even brought a HALF a PACKAGE of Cookies - the family size bag. WHY?
Now my kids have started their year-long whine about why are they the only ones who follow the rules - blah blah. SO frustrating.
Why do this to your kids then attack the doctor when they say your child is obese! The school is trying to help you!
EDIT: I do not have any trouble finding healthy snacks my kids love (thanks for the tips though). I am saying the rule is no junk food and DAY 2 of school parents are breaking this rule and nobody cares! I have to spend the whole year explaining that it is not ok to break rule even if EVERYONE else does and does not get in trouble.
