After working for over a month to organize our 2009 Great American Bake Sale events, it seems pretty ironic that I am writing a post about healthier desserts options for your family. Maybe it is my guilty conscience – I filled up our community with sugar (it was for a good cause), and now I am compensating by giving you healthier options that you can add to your repertoire.
We have already talked about how challenging it can be to negotiate desserts with your kids. Instead of offering dessert every night, you could offer it as a special way to honor good behavior or celebrate an achievement. Some of my readers asked me for some healthier versions of “typical” desserts. Not only do these recipes taste great, they include healthy ingredients – so it’s almost like they are contributing to your family’s nutrition!
