Q: As a parent trying to prepare healthy food & snacks for my kids, it's so hard to compete with all those prepackaged goodies with all the fun characters! Do your readers have any way to package healthy snacks (bags of crackers, carrots, healthy cookies) at home in a way that make them look appealing to toddlers? I've seen those little party toppers for goody bags, but I have no computer skills. I would love to find some free downloadable options.
