 Mrs. Fields Famous Brands ("Mrs. Fields") and Interbake Foods LLC ("Interbake Foods," the company responsible for the manufacture and sale of Mrs. Fields branded pre-packaged cookies sold at retailers throughout North America) today kicked off "Mrs. Fields Moments," a national campaign inspiring busy cookie lovers to slow down and enjoy a cookie moment with loved ones.
At a time when obligations leave precious little time for the ones that matter most, Mrs. Fields is encouraging a nationwide movement to dedicate Sunday night to cookie moments with family and friends. Mrs. Fields wants every cookie lover to embrace and share their #mrsfieldsmoments ? from milk-and-cookies to bedtime treats ? and has provided fun and useful tools for doing so at www.mrsfieldsmoments.com.
Mrs. Fields is a Proud Supporter of the United Service Organizations, Inc. (USO), and "Mrs. Fields Moments" builds on the Organization's "Every Moment Counts" campaign, which helps all families ? military and otherwise ? make the most of every moment together.

"When you buy Mrs. Fields cookies, you're not just buying a cookie: You're helping create moments that matter for troops enduring long deployments," said Kevin McDonough, President of Interbake Foods. "By buying a box of Mrs. Fields cookies, you help give a cookie moment for you and for them. It's a touch of home to those who need it most."

Some Tips for Picture Day
Does your school have picture day coming up? Here are a few tips to help your child achieve their best look.


Backgrounds
First, it is a good idea to use a neutral background. With a neutral brown or gray background, your child will stand out better. It also won?t be difficult to make sure your child is dressed in a complementary color. 


Clothing
Pick out the outfit your child is to wear on picture day the night before. Let them help select what he/she will be wearing and make sure it is something they will be comfortable in. When a child has had a say in what they wear, he/she will feel good about himself and that will show in the photograph. Avoid shirts with slogans!

Hair
Help your child have a good hair day. Get their hair cut a week or two before picture day so they look clean cut while still giving it time to grow out a little and look natural. Remember, a complicated hair style might not withstand recess or gym and school schedules do not allow much time for hairstyling.

Lunch
Don?t forget to pack a safe lunch. This tip is especially important for small children prone to spilling and children with braces.  Aim for foods that won?t stick in teeth. (Broccoli, spinach, corn on the cob, chips, chocolate, grape juice, etc.) Ketchup can also be dangerous.

Is Lifetouch your school photographer? Make sure to check the website Retailmenot for coupon codes that can give you a discount on your package if you order online. I have two kids in school so saving money is a bonus. Last time I looked there was a 10% off coupon, $10 off $40 and also a 20% of $40.

If all else fails, remember there is always re-take day.
