SparkPeople ~Support for Childcare Providers~ Team Messageboard This is a place to support each other in our jobs as childcare providers & weight loss! Some of us work in our home and some of us work in centers! SparkPeople ~Support for Childcare Providers~ Team Messageboard Blogging I challenge each of you to try blogging, it really helps. Try to do at least two times a week, can you or better yet will you? It will help! Wed, 25 Sep 2013 10:01:17 EST Any ideas that help save time or avoid waste? I was just doing something that made me think of this: What other great ideas do other providers do that help save time or avoid waste? <BR> <BR> I peel over ripe bananas and freeze them instead of throwing them away, and when I have a couple I make smoothies for snack with the kids. <BR> <BR> 2 bananas, 1 cup of yogurt, some milk and some frozen berries in a blender YUM!!
