Parents always try to feed their children something healthy, but it can get hard during the holidays.

That's why the Children's Museum in Stevens Point held an event for children to make ginger bread houses with healthier ingredients. They used peanut butter instead of icing, granola instead of chocolate and raisins instead of sprinkles. Parents say they were happy to see their kids having such a good time.

"We do try to make healthy choices most of the time and right around the holidays there's not many opportunities like these and have it still healthy," said Maureen Ellestad, a mom at the event.

Organizers say their goal was to have children learn how to make a healthy ginger bread house through a fun activity. Most of the children had such a good time, they could not even tell the difference.
