Chocolate Covered StrawberriesAre you looking for something fun and different to bring into school for your child's classroom birthday celebration? Here are five ideas for unique treats to share in the classroom—and even better, they won't leave the teacher with the aftermath of sugary students.

  • Chocolate Covered Strawberries. I made these recently, and couldn't believe not only how easy it was, but how much the kids adored them. Here's the Chocolate Covered Strawberries recipe—just three ingredients!
  • Fruit Kabobs. I am always amazed how quickly my kids gobble these up. Choose your child's favorite fruits, or make assorted varieties so classmates can grab what they like. My kids love a rainbow kabob—start at the bottom with a purple grape then add a blueberry, green grape, mango wedge, orange slice, and end with a red strawberry on top.
  • Fruit Salad Cones. These are adorable, and so easy to make. And everyone knows kids love anything they get to eat out of a cone!
  • Popsicles. This is a great no-prep solution—you just need to be available to bring the popsicles to school right before the celebration to avoid a melt-down. And there are plenty of recipes if you want to make your own popsicles—check out 176 Homemade Popsicle Recipes.
  • Pudding. There are plenty of low-fat versions to choose from in the supermarket for a ready-made option, or if you'd like to make your own, try this healthy recipe for Greek Yogurt Cherry Chocolate "Pudding" Cups. To delight the kids, add sprinkles on top and serve in small plastic cups.
