This is also a challenge for me. When I was Primary President, I allowed treats once in awhile until I had one very vocal parent complain. Since then, no food has been allowed. However, I've heard the new handbook doesn't say you can't bring food so we are thinking of doing a treat reward once in awhile (maybe once a quarter). Hopefully no one will complain!
