Nearly Wordless Wednesday: Veggies at the Halloween Party

I'm reading: Nearly Wordless Wednesday: Veggies at the Halloween PartyTweet this!

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.

I'm the room mother and set the menu for our party: carrots, grapes, cheese sticks, mini cupcakes. Everyone was on board for the healthier snacks with a small indulgence.

And then some parent sent in two bags of candy and Oreos!

We put the candy in their cubbies to be sent home. It wasn't really necessary to the party...especially one held shortly before lunch time.
