Here’s a wild New York Times piece about a mom who is fighting mad about her kid’s school sometimes serving junk food. While the school lunches are nutritious, the mom is livid that some party treats, like cupcakes, are not. Quote the mom: “I thought I was sending my kid to P.S. 9, not Chuck E. Cheese.”
Now, not that I am pro-junk food (said your blogger, popping another M&M thoughtfully). But I don’t think we are poisoning our children when they get to eat something sugary at a school birthday party. Or any birthday party. Feed your kids nutritious meals, and then? Let them eat cake.
Did someone else say that first?
