No cupcakes. No CUPCAKES?
…Ah, the class birthday treat. Your Mom is bringing something from you for the whole class. You’re proud.
…Remember the white cupcakes with the rainbow sprinkles, the slathered faces, the giggling?
…”They can bring carrots,” snaps an assistant to the superintendent of one Orange Country school district. “A birthday does not have to be associated with food.”
…May HA say something here? YES, IT DOES, YOU BIDDY.
…The busy little obesity nannies have zeroed in on the birthday cupcake. And parents are fighting back.
…Texas passed a state law called The Safe Cupcake amendment giving parents the right to deliver treats to the classroom on certain occasions. Candy corn on Halloween was mentioned.
…Let’s see Bill O. take on that one.
…Disclaimer. Kids should not live on high frustose corn sugar alone, please give them a green bean once in awhile, blah, blah. But it’s their birthday!
…No cupcakes now, serial killers later?
…Think about it.
