No Pizza

So, the Sumner County School Board has decided that for birthday parties, reward days, and other special things, pizza parties and any kind of sweets can't be consumed. This means that "healthy" snacks and treats will have to be served. I'm anxious to see what they come up with.

I hope they don't ask me to send nothing for the "Holiday Party" or "Harvest Celebration." If they do, I'm going to send them grass and leaves from my yard and we'll see how that goes over.

So, it's the school's fault too many kids are fat? No parental responsibility here?

This ends my pseudo-political post for the month.

Pizza doesn't have to be unhealthy. It's better than twinkies and koolaid. And the carbs aren't too high as long as you don't serve the kids beer with it. ;)

Pizza can be fairly healthy. I agree with the schools removing the soda machines....and the extra cookies, and such...but removing the goodies from PARTIES?? sheesh.

As a PTO Officer and spouse of a teacher, I can say once again our elected officials acted rashly just because it was an easy political target. What about the fact that most of these "fat" kids spend 20 hours in front of tv and computers with a bag of chips, and no longer spend anytime "playing" in the neighborhood. Wake Up!
