My daughter greeted me at pick-up on the 100th day of school, wearing this necklace. I tried not to look horrified as I saw her classmates eating these Fruit Loop necklaces. Ok…I confess. I did eat some Fruit Loops when I was a kid. My mom and most others didn’t know the benefits of whole grains and the toxicity of red dye #5. My dauther proudly explained how she counted out 100, and asked if she could eat some. I said “It’s so colorful and you worked so hard. How about if I take your picture with it and we go and get a gelato instead?” She was happy with the offer. She got to show the necklace to dad and brother later that night and then we said goodbye necklace.
