A new Washington school district policy is not so sweet.
Edmonds School District has banned edible birthday treats from the classroom, citing wellness concerns.
“No food is allowed as part of a birthday celebration,” the district’s wellness committee writes on its website. Instead, the school says students can bring in pencils, erasers or origami to celebrate their special day.

I would hesitate to bring snacks to a modern gradeschool classroom because of all the food allergies that have become so commonplace.

Im glad we do not have such a custom. Do your cakes have glutein, excessive amount of sugar, artificial colors etc? Just by looking even they are well done, my kid would not eat those (doctors orders) and would just look at others eating those. Or do you have glutein free versions to those who are celiac and colors are natural to those who might have autism, and sugar free to those who are diabetic ?
