There's a new school rule or guideline recommending that all classroom parties include fruit and or vegetables. Amen to that! It's about time.
We put out the healthy stuff before the big cupcakes were passed out and though there were a few ghoulish moans of resistance at first, the children filled their plates.
Of course, they still managed to find lots of room on their plates and desks for cookies, cupcakes and about 15 different types of candy.
