About a dozen families turned out to decorate cookies last Friday afternoon at the Anglican church, making a mess and having lots of fun in the process.

“It’s just a great activity and I hope everyone loves it as much as I do,” said Angela Jacobs, co-ordinator for Healthy Families.

“And they make for a great last-minute present if people happen to have forgotten about getting someone a present.”

There were also boxes of apples, oranges, and bananas on hand which participants could take home to balance out the sweet treats.

Jacobs said part of her program’s goals is to get families to eat healthier and said she is happy to do anything she can to help.
