Holiday Treats for Kids
Winter break is almost here! During this time, schools often celebrate with fun parties and delicious snacks. Unfortunately, many of these treats are packed with sugar and loaded with fat. Not to worry, ONIE has some healthy snack options for you! Here are a few tasty treats that are easy to make and fun for kids to take. Pack just one or maybe all three, and watch your kids head to school with glee!
