At least this did not happen at Izzy's school. I know I used to lament the snack situation there but lately, for the most part, I think many parents have been putting more thought and effort into the snacks they provide (even if it means substituting multi-grain goldfish for the ordinary variety which makes me chuckle but I realize they have to start somewhere).
The snacks Izzy is served sound like health food compared to what is served in one class at another Hoboken/JC private school. A recent morning snack menu featured GUMMY BEARS. Who really wants their child to eat a sticky, sugary candy, in the morning and have that coating their teeth all day? Do educated parents really consider candy a snack? If so why? Are they caving to T.V. culture and preschooler whims? Perhaps they themselves consume candy all day.
I am not 100% anti-sweets but there is a time and place for them and school snack is most definitely neither the time nor the place.
