More nanny state foolishness – bake sales

Call it a bake sale but there will be no homemade goods – only off the shelf packaged junk food. NY City’s Panel for Education Policy has banned homemade products from school “bake sale” events – of course to protect you from yourself. SHEESH. (more here)

The bake sale ban is supposed to reduce childhood obesity. An education bureaucrat explained that homemade goods can’t be allowed because it’s impossible to know their portion size and content.  You may add raisins to your banana bread and slice it thin, while I add walnuts and cut it thick.

Hence banana bread, cupcakes and anything else baked at home have been banished; but kids are free to gorge on Kellogg’s Frosted Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop-Tarts, which come in portion-controlled packages and have known ingredients—in fact a long list of ingredients from high fructose corn syrup to yellow dye #6.

PLEASE MAKE IT STOP!!!
