We all need a sweet treat now and then. Mine is always chocolate–I can’t get enough! I know my kids like to have a little dessert in their school lunches, and I like to know what I’m giving them.
Have you looked at the ingredients in some of the packaged desserts? I prefer to give my kids healthier treats most of the time, saving store-bought desserts for special times. Plus, some of us have to watch out for certain ingredients because of our children’s allergies.
