    Talking Feeding Santa Healthy Snacks Christmas Eve
    This is from my friend, Donny Claxton in Dallas.

    Read the full post on his blog.
    Santa’s On A Diet, Exercising And Encouraging Better Eating Habits

    *Check out the snack ideas for Santa on Christmas Eve
    *And don’t miss the YouTube video of Santa working out

    While not completely eliminating traditional sweets from Christmas Eve Santa snacks, the nutritionist has recommended choices of the following items for Santa and the reindeer:

    ½ cup granola with a sprinkle of dried cherries and unsalted nuts and 1% or skim, fat-free milk or plain or light yogurt
    Red/yellow/green pepper strips with nonfat sour cream or hummus dip
    Grapes or apple slices with 1 oz of cheese or peanut butter
    Air-popped
    Hard cooked egg with a dash of spicy mustard
    Berries with 1 oz of ricotta or string cheese
    Sunflower, pumpkin or squash seeds
    Sugar-free Jell-O
    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
    Bagel chips or baked tortilla chips with salsa
    Spread all natural, low sugar peanut butter on a celery stick, pretzel or banana
    Pita bread stuffed with lettuce, tomato, cucumber and low-fat dressing

    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:

    CHRISTMAS COOKIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Agree with Judi. it's as simple as this: Jameson shooters to wash down Mrs. Beachy's Christmas Cookies and Milk.

    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.

    Santa needs protien! We left him a Cliff Bar and some Mountain Dew.

    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.
