More insanity with the schools around food… It is getting worse, people. When it happens to your child, please make a stand and tell the schools it’s not OK… My daughter’s school is a “sweet-free zone”. There is even a poster in one of the classes that shows a cupcake with a big slash through it and a big declaration, “This is a sweet-free zone!” M came home the other day  confused as to why Mrs. W. was giving the other teachers brownies, but not...

She did have milk with lunch, but I noticed the absence of protein otherwise. (I am so happy I don’t have to harp on her at every meal to “get” the protein in since we follow the Division of Responsibility. Every meal and snack had a protein offered, but she gets to chose it– or...

Hi Katja, I just had to share this with you. I just got back from a weekend at Nationwide Children’s hospital in Columbus, OH with my daughter who had come down with pneumonia (she’s fine now).
