    I Love it! I was just at Whole Foods last night and noticed a display of ‘junk’ toys for stocking stuffers that where cheap, and made in China. I decided to change our tradition, and stuff the kids stockings with healthy treats, including their favorite homemade cookies, candied nuts, and cheese with crackers.
