Conn. Principal Bans Cupcakes From School

Wed Nov 3,10:36 AM ET


MILFORD, Conn. - Cupcakes became contraband at Meadowside elementary school, after Principal Robert Davis banned all celebratory sweets — a move that has made some parents sour.

Health officials said Davis adopted a new policy of using games and crafts instead of baked goods to fete birthdays, holidays and special occasions, and praised it as a way to combat childhood obesity.

Parent Jack Fowler said no one should dictate what students can bring to school for special events. He said health and school officials have turned into the "fat police," in an attempt to rid schools of foods children enjoy.

Mayor James L. Richetelli Jr. said as a parent he can understand health and school officials' concern regarding food allergies and childhood obesity, but cupcakes should remain.

I wonder why they simply don't encourage a more active PE program in their school? Make those little lard butts move around instead of sitting on their butts?

But sugar is counter productive to ritalin. They can't dope the children up and make them good little automotams if their active.

Good, ban sodas and sweets. Now the kids will be able to concentrate on their work.
