HERE AT THE DARCEY SUNSHINE WE LIKE TO LOOK AT EVERY ASPECT OF A CHILD'S WELLBEING AND SAFETY.  FOR THIS REASON, NUTRITION MUST BE A PART OF EVERY CLASS.  WITHOUT PROPER NUTRITION, OUR BODIES AND MINDS CAN'T GROW AND DEVELOP AS THEY SHOULD. UNTIL NOW, OUR LITTLE SWIMMERS HAVE RECEIVED A JAM SANDWICH AFTER EACH CLASS, HOWEVER WE WANT TO PACK A NUTRITIONAL PUNCH WITH A BAR PACKED WITH ALL THE GOODNESS A GROWING BODY NEEDS, ALONG WITH A PIECE OF FRUIT EACH WEEK.  IF YOU'D LIKE TO HELP US MAKE THAT HAPPEN, WHY NOT GIVE THE RECIPE BELOW A TRY??
