St. Paul School District Bans All Sweet and Salty Snacks

Parents better think twice about giving their kids a bag of chips or a cupcake as part of their school lunch. The school district has banned the snacks entirely.

Reminders have been sent to teachers, students and parents that "sweet, sticky, fat-laden [and] salty treats" aren't allowed during the school day, said Jean Ronnei, the district's director of nutrition services.

Why not ban parenting altogether and let the government raise our kids? It worked out well for Hitler.
