At recess, all week long, we gave Jackman kids an opportunity to taste a Bear Paw cookie and a homemade cookie (courtesy of Mr. Cressman). We asked, "Which cookie did you prefer?"
Here are the results from last week’s Bear Paw Cookie Challenge. In total, there were 345 kids were tested. 69 kids chose bear paws as their favourite cookie. And an incredible 276 chose homemade cookies! Wow… that’s 80% of Jackman kids choosing homemade cookies. That means 8 out of 10 kids prefer homemade cookies.
We think Jackman families should consider baking cookies more often. We know it takes more time, but we think it's worth the effort. Homemade cookies are very tasty! And totally waste free! Not to mention, they’re so much fun to make. Why not make it a family baking experience? Everyone can participate.
And to encourage more home baking, Mr. Cressman has shared his delicious cookie recipe with Jackman families. You’ll find his recipe on our new eco blog, wastefreejackman.blogspot.ca - Mr. Cressman's Cookie Recipe This eco blog will have lots of recipes and ideas for waste free lunches and snacks.
More baking, less garbage! :-)
