Michelle Obama’s Inspiration Results in Cupcake Ban in Washington State Schools

Parents, remember birthday treats? The cupcakes and cookies you indulged in to celebrate a classmate’s birthday. Well, they’re now a distant memory like Aquanet hairspray and acid-washed blue jeans for the children in one school district in Washington State.

According to the Washington Times, the Wellness Committee of Edmonds School District, outside Seattle, stated in its guide to schools that classroom birthday parties may be celebrated with non-food treats only.

Food treats can be eaten in the classroom three times per year.

Apparently, the State now has to regulate cupcake intake.

A spokesman for the school district told the media it’s not healthy for a cupcake party to be thrown for every student on their birthday, according to Fox 6.

Apparently, the district was inspired by the First Lady Michelle Obama‘s Let’s Move program.

“We’re not just talking about one cupcake a year, we’re talking about 25 cupcakes a year,” said DJ Jakala, spokeswoman for the Edmonds School District.

Not everyone is excited for the discontinuation of birthday treats though.

“It’s not necessarily the district’s job to control that, to take away from everybody, it’s overreaching,” parent Marcus Shelton said.

First Lady Michelle Obama‘s “Let’s Move” anti-obesity campaign and her disciples apparently believe that sugar is the new “crack cocaine.”

Last year, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski blasted soda makers saying, ‘It’s killing our children. It’s liquid sugar and sugar is poison.”

Has the pleasure police gone too far by banning cupcakes from the classroom? Please comment below.

    Who in the hell died and deemed “HER” God? I am very glad I do not have children in school anymore! I, being the parent will approve or disapprove what MY child eats and when!!!

    You mean the First Drag Queen, right? Come on people, does anyone not know what a woman looks like anymore?

  3. Shawn Hunter says:

    That’s a 50/50 argument, We are far more lazy, and likely to stay indoors with all of the media out there. But I also remember when I was a kid you were told to stay outside all day, which sucked, but you got your exercise for the day. I don’t see how they have the right to just force the kids to eat what they want them to eat, they’ll just throw it out. I can see it now 7th Grader suspended for not eating his broccoli!

    Common Core idiocy, lunatic requirements, teachers underpaid and overworked, parents underpaid and overworked….and we’re regulating CUPCAKES?! REALLY??!! How much more ludicrous can this insanity get, or do I really want to know the answer to that I’m-not-entirely-sure-it’s-a-rhetorical question?

  5. John Wirth says:

    Why doesn’t someone inform her/him that until she reduces those thunder thighs and humongeous butt, she should not be sticking her/his nose in anyone else’s business.

  6. 5warveteran says:

    Just a perfect example of how stupid American’s and American schools really are.
    Like some sort of “celebrity worship”.

    OMG people the Pres and his Mooch are just people like you and I but a whole lot more criminal.

  7. Georgie says:

    By the size of her ass, Moochie should really be watching what SHE eats!

  8. The Cupcake Nazi: “NO CUPCAKES FOR YOU!!!”
