Last week it was my turn to bring snack to an after school program. I asked my daughter what she would like to bring. She sighed in great disappointment, something ‘normal.’ I was a bit shocked. My usual go to snacks of Nourished-Up hemp seed power cookies, cut veggies or a bag of mini-oranges has never been problematic before.
What she really meant was for me to bring what the other parents bring—those nasty mini glazed donuts, orange-and-green iced cookies, some kind of powdery, electric orange cheesy chip, pre-packaged gooey granola bars, etc. You get the idea. But the thing is, this is not normal.
