So I just have to ask, if the Scouts were to plan,
purchase the ingredients for, prepare the batter,
learn to cook on the camp stove, and clean up
afterwards; their own doughnuts, it might be okay as a
menu item? Especially if they add milk and fresh
fruit to go with the doughnuts that they have made?
Fresh doughnuts are not that hard to make. I'll grant
you that they are deep fried, so not the best choice.
However they ARE a grain product, similar to pancakes
and cereal. I don't think that they have any more
sugar than most cereals today. Especially if you make
them yourself. My experience with teenagers is that
most of them don't eat breakfast at all, so I wouldn't
mind if they ate a couple of doughnuts with some fruit
and milk. <g>
