Here is a list of the top three cookies served at Kid City Sunday school.
Yup! No cookies are served at all during Sunday school at Sinclair Baptist. I know that seems kinda mean and heartless, but let me explain.
I have served a lot of wonderful, sugar-ladened snacks in my days as a children’s worker, but times are a changin’. With allergies abounding, glutens on the prowl and concerns about over-sugaring the kids, we have found the best thing to do is to allow the moms and dad to make the call. We have an extensive refreshment table with fruit, healthy granola bars, yogurt and cheese sticks. Of course, it also has some of the more refined “adult snacks” such as donuts and fresh baked, cinnamon rolls. If a kid is hungry enough, we let them negotiate it out with their parents who know the dietary limitation far better than we.
If a child is desperately needing just a little something, we have bottled water and some nice safe, gluten-free Cherrios we can give them in place of the the Oreos, NutterButters and Chocolate-covered Deluxe Grahams that are reserved for the pastoral staff!
