Fundraising Chocolates and School Wellness Policies...

To Snack or Not To Snack. That is the question.

The hippest thing in schools today is a push towards healthy fundraising products.

I really think this is a slippery slope.  On one hand, children are suffering from obesity and need to live healthy balanced lives.  On the other hand, from a practical viewpoint, a granola fundraiser won't sell anywhere close to as much as a cookie dough fundraiser.

Chime in on this one! 

What do you think?  Should schools prohibit unhealthy items in fundraisers or should schools fundraise to the best of their ability despite the fact that some of the items may be snack-y?

Ok, until next time!
