Pennsylvaina says, "JUST SAY NO" to cupcakes????

The cake, cookies and candy at the school parties you might remember will become a no-no if the state approves new nutrition guidelines.

The Pennsylvania State Board of Education expects to vote this spring on new nutrition guidelines for food served at school, said Adam Schott, the board's executive director.
The rules would limit the number of parties to one classroom birthday celebration a month, and no more than three holiday parties a year. They must be held after lunch.
The state could withhold or rescind state and federal reimbursements for districts that don't comply. The state could revoke approval for vending machines from offending districts.
