Remember the good old days, when it was someones birthday at school and their mom or dad brought in a whole boat load of cupcakes with 2 inches of obviously colored frosting on the top?? Yes, those days are long gone. Most school have strict nutrition policies that limit what you can and cannot bring in for your child’s birthday treats to share with the class. Some school say you have to bring in prepackaged snacks but others still allow you to make or bake something, but it has to fit the policy. Most schools don’t mind you bringing in a treat, even a sweeter one, but you do have to keep it on the healthier side. That doesn’t mean that you can’t still celebrate your child’s birthday in a fun way with a special and creative treat! I have rounded up 30 fun and healthier treats that would make great birthday snacks for an entire class, or even just a special anyway treat!
Fruit and Cheese Kabobs (stay away from pointy sticks though!)
