Serena Williams' Pre-ESPYs House Party

Imagine my surprise when I’m going through Hailey‘s folder, after a great first day of 3rd grade, and seeing a note from McKinney ISD about no more cupcakes at school. What? Why?

You cupcake haters have lost your mind.

After reading on I discover that the McKinney ISD health advisory committee voted in support of a recommendation to no longer allow parents to bring homemade treats into school for birthdays and the three school parties.  They decided to take this decision a step further and will no longer be celebrating birthdays at school with food items including cupcakes.  While I’m all for keeping kids healthy I also know how exciting it is for a child to bring cupcakes or cookies to school on their birthday!

Is this really going to make a difference in kids health?  Have you seen what they serve at lunch?  Maybe we should start there first.
