Grapes or apple slices with 1 oz of cheese or peanut butter
Hard cooked egg with a dash of spicy mustard
Berries with 1 oz of ricotta or string cheese
Sunflower, pumpkin or squash seeds
Plain or light (sugar free) yogurt
Smoked salmon and cream cheese on cucumber slices
Lettuce Roll-ups –- Roll luncheon meat, egg salad, tuna or other filling and veggies in lettuce leaves
Whole-grain bagel (3 inch) topped with natural peanut butter

Spread all natural, low sugar peanut butter on a celery stick, pretzel or banana

Greg, this is great and there are some awesome ideas for healthy snacks here. But I have to say, if I was going to spend my life gearing up for one annual trip, delivering goodies to everyone's house but my own, I wouldn't do it for dried cranberries or yogurt. The deal is as old as time:

In case you didn't read the blog post, here is another snippet.
In January, through my PR, social media and marketing company, Claxton Creative, LLC, I’m also going to be sending letters to New York advertising agencies calling on them to be more responsible and use thinner representations of the Jolly Old Elf in 2011.
In our conversation it became clear, Santa isn’t a happy man. His weight is really troubling him these days. He said he realizes that his weight and eating habits are setting a poor example for children of all ages. The man who has been a positive influence on generations of children said he is intent on remaining a positive influence. He said the best way he knows to do that is to add some healthy changes in his eating habits and for advertising firms to be more responsible and use healthier representations of his obese figure.

So Santa can't be a positive influence unless he slims down? I find that kind of silly. I know plenty of overweight teachers (some because of genetic issues) that are very positive influences. I prefer Santa just the way he is, magical and an eternal positive influence. There are other avenues to influence children to eat healthier than changing traditional figures.

Don't mess with a good thing! Hands off, puhleeeeze! It's bad enough that Christmas tunes are banned from malls...a skinny Santa? A weight-pumping Santa? Really, enough already with the PC stuff.
But of course, it's not about that. It's really about generating a viral buzz for CC over a "controversial" issue. I suppose everything is fair game in the advertising world.Renée
