A Toothy Grin - Fun for children!

Eating healthy...the battle of the ages!!
  It is amazing how quickly our little ones become addicted to that sugary treat,
as opposed to the fruit that we start feeding them as babies.  

I saw both of these treats on the internet, and immediately thought,
"Oh I wish I had some little ones to make these for".  
But I thought of all the mothers of young children in blogland,
and decided to make them anyway.
As I finished inserting the last of the "teeth" my 18 yr old walked into the kitchen.
"Oh, can I have one of those," she said. 
I gladly shared my "toothy grins" with her, and for just a second 
she was that little toddler with the great big grin and chubby cheeks again!

Sometimes they find it just as hard to "grow up" as we do to " let them"!!! 

Apple slices, peanut butter and mini marsh mellows 

This next snack is just as easy and healthy!

 I do not eat peanut butter due to a severe allergy to any type of nuts.  Recently, I have started eating Soy Butter.  I really like it, and hubby tells me it tastes the same as the "real thing", except it is made from soy beans. In our area, some schools do not allow any nut products in the children's snacks and lunches, due to children with the same allergy as I have.  This is a perfect option for those children who love PB & Jelly!

Apple, Apple
(Tune: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star)
Apple, apple on the tree,
I know that you are good for me.
You are fun to munch and crunch
For a snack and for my lunch.
Apple, apple on the tree,
I know that you are good for me. 

When my children were small we used to like printing off coloring pages from the internet.  It was a new coloring book every day!  Check out these apple coloring pages.
