21 Dec 2011 Christmas Treats
 |  Category: Children
Christmas has become one of those weird times at our house. This time of year is filled with parties and get-togethers and everything seems to revolve around food. With three of us having allergies to cane sugar and corn syrup, and two others with various food issues, it can get a bit difficult at times. On the other hand, everyone now knows who we are because we’re the oddballs that always have to bring our own foods to each and every event. I’m not complaining. It has actually gotten to be fun for us. I’ve noticed that my children get a kick out of sharing their treats with their friends and then telling them only after they have taken a bite that what they are eating contains no cane sugars or corn syrup and is probably gluten free! So, if you are spending any time with us this holiday season, be prepared. ;)

  1. Birdie, I tried a new (to me) sugar-free, gluten-free idea that uses only dried apricots, an orange, and some flaked coconut. The post is linked through my signature there. The recipe suggests cutting the apricot logs into thick slices for lunchbox treats, but I thought they were prettier sliced thin and put on a plate of sweets.

    Oh, thank you, Mama Squirrel! I will have to look that one up and try it.
