No more 'treats' allowed as birthday treats!
Hint: Kids aren't fat because of cupcakes at school. They're fat because their parents consistently feed them fast food, junk food, and high sugar drinks, and then let them sit in front of the television for hours at a time.
Let kids be kids and let parents send whatever birthday treats they want to send. It's the kid's one day out of the year. Why ruin it by suggesting they pass out apples for the celebration?
