The Environmental Working Group has released a new analysis of children's cereals, "Sugar Bombs," which they have cleverly subtitled "Twinkies for Breakfast." Read the report here or jump to the list of best and worst cereals here.
Then, you can read this blog post on how cereal is marketed to your kid s- by a former food industry marketer. Scary.
The Times ran some nice ideas for food gifts you can make - including some breakfast mixes that will nicely displace the above referenced cereals.
Sea Cliff School's Holiday Craft Fair is Saturday from 10-1. It's a terrific opportunity for kids to make their own gifts. We never miss it. More info at www.seacliffpca.org.
Old Westbury House and Gardens will also have holiday crafts for kids from 10-1 on Saturday and card-making at 1pm on Sunday. Our village library does have a pass to this museum you can check out.
Coe Hall at the Planting Fields has various holiday festivities this weekend including Gingerbread House making. See their website.
Have dinner like a Robber Baron at the Vanderbilt Museum on Saturday. Check website for details - it sells out.
