Jackie’s Story

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010 | Author: Smart Start

“One thing we’ve learned through the NAP SACC program is that birthday parties don’t have to be centered on cupcakes, ice cream and juice. For celebrations, we now ask parents to bring healthy food options like low-fat yogurt, low-fat mini muffins, flavored ‘fizzy’ water, and cheese cubes.

We’ve found that often, the most important thing to the child is that we take the time to plan something special like reading favorite stories, playing special music, or other games and activities.”

-Jackie Wilkins, Director of Good Shepherd Day School, Rocky Mt.
