My kids are always asking for sweet treats – so it can be hard to keep a balance between healthy eating habits and allowing sweet treats. One way we do this is by having them help make ‘better for you’ snacks. I love to include them in preparing these snacks and choosing their ingredients. It’s a great way to spend time together in the kitchen and to teach them about preparing wholesome snacks.
Honey Maid helps us create so many of these snacks with their delicious and wholesome graham crackers. From fruit topped snacks to frozen yogurt sandwiches, there is no limit to what we can create! My kids love topping their graham crackers with fruit and then drizzling a little chocolate over it. The fact that they are involved in making them makes it a more special treat – one they don’t take for granted!
You can top your graham cracker with any kind of fruit to create these easy and tasty treat! It’s simple, fun and I feel good about. Best of all, it helps us connect as a family. And that’s something every child deserves – family. The idea of family is unique to every individual and in our home, we’re teaching our children that. It’s about love and a strong connection.
Honey Maid has long recognized and celebrated that while the makeup and day-to -day lives of families have evolved, the idea and importance of wholesome family connections remain the same.
It’s no secret that the American family has changed.
- One in 12 married couples in the U.S. are interracial 
- Nearly 40% of children don’t live with both of their biological parents. Only 62% of children live with their two biological parents 
- 125,000-plus same-sex couples currently raising children in the U.S. 
- More than 1.5 million American families  have been touched by adoption

In my life, I know several people who have been touched by adoption. A cousin who adopted a child from another country, a cousin I grew up with that was adopted, and countless students that I worked with that were adopted by foster families, grandparents, and many other scenarios. The bottom line is that every child deserves a family – a support, a constant, the feeling of connection, no matter who makes up that family.
