Anita Hanft

I am the family coordinator for Good Grief Princeton, a nonprofit that offers free peer support groups for kids who have lost a mom or dad or brother or sister. When I first meet these families, I always have a bowl of Tootsie Roll Pops on my desk. I have discovered that they are the ultimate comfort candy! They give nervous kids something to hold onto, last a long time while being low cal and low fat and have that satisfying chew at the end. It is not an exaggeration to say that a Tootsie Roll Pop usually brings a much-needed smile to both kids and adults who come to us for help. Thanks.
