The Nanny State

As part of its new "wellness" policy, Saddleback Valley School District here in Orange County may even ban the sale of treats which will be sold and consumed off campus. Goodbye, See's Candy fundraisers.

I think everyone likes the idea of setting a good example for healthy eating, but there is such a thing as "moderation." Forbidding the PTA from selling candy off campus -- where the buyers are most often, after all, adults -- is just silly, as is threatening to restrict students' birthday cupcakes.
