Holidays! A time to eat…

Cookies, hot cocoa, cakes, peppermint barks, casseroles, chocolates and treats galore! There isn’t one place you turn without some sort of temptation or distractions. I feel completely overwhelmed as a parent during this time of year. How do I keep my family to the rules while everyone else seems to be living on the edge and enjoying their “sugar-highs”?

This year I adopted a different strategy, and so far it has been going well. I suppose a full report at the end of the season will give us more reliable results. What have I done you ask? I filled our own house full of snacks and treats! Yep, you heard me right. I figured if I was in control of the treats I could at least make them with the best ingredients, taking out the most amount of white sugars and adding fruits and fiber whenever possible. I pack them in tins and we take them to parties with us, to school, to gatherings at the park. The only trick is that we usually have to bring extras! Inevitably someone wants to try and we are very good at sharing.

Here are a few recipes I’ve been making and would like to share with you! I should say we do of course still keep to portions that are appropriate and keep snacks and treats only after meals so they are still getting all their nutrition from veggies and wholesome foods as well.
