Not only are bake sales fun and creative ways for kids to share food and culture, but its a great opportunity for parents and their children to spend time together after school aside from going over math and spelling homework. Ban vending machines and dare I say processed meat ravioli and tater tots. Ban high fructose corn syrup. Ban M&M fundraising. But bake sales? Come on!

All of the elementary schools in my part of the woods of Queens are building gigantic additions to make the schools K thru 8 and they are encroaching on the open space where as kids we played basketball and stickball during recess and after school. Leaving kids with no outdoor options is surely not a good way to battle the obesity epidemic. Instead they come up with the idiotic solution to ban bake sales in NYC Public Schools? How unAmerican is that?
