So I’m a little confused.
My daughter’s school has made it very clear that we are not to send snacks/treats/candy in from home anymore. There is an initiative to limit these treats because of how unhealthy they are and because some pose allergy risks.
I am TOTALLY on board with this. Why do the kids have to celebrate a special occasion with cupcakes and candy?
Now, for birthday celebrations, the kids have 3 choices:
1. We can send in non-edible treats like a pencil/eraser set
2. The children can play 7 Up or a similar game
3. A parent/guardian can go to school and read a book to the class
So today for Valentine’s Day my daughter brought in a Valentine’s Day card for every single member of her class!
But….this is what she brought home!!! What am I missing? Should I feel bad?
