The Lunch Lady on Classroom Birthday Treats

With all the recent talk about "pink slime" I came across this website buried in an article and found a few other interesting articles including this one about treats at school for birthdays. I admit to a cringe when E's 2nd grade newsletter comes home with all of the month's birthdays. It usually means an enormous, hydrogenated, food-colored, sugar ball is passed out to each of his classmates.

I try to balance my appreciation for organic, homemade meals with sweet indulgences and like where this Lunch Lady is coming from.
