Now I am not too old to remember that when I was a young lad when it was my birthday, my mum would bake a cake and my friends would come over, cause mayhem and share the cake.
Pretty normal stuff right?
Not in Nanny's world!
Olivia Morris, nine years old, wanted to share her granny's homemade chocolate birthday cake with her friends at Rockingham Infant and Junior School in Rotherham.
Not so fast Olivia!
The cake, an unctuous creation of chocolate decorated with Maltesers and Jellytots, was deemed "ungood" by the miserable followers of Nanny at her school.
The school banned her from sharing it with her friends, because it did not comply with healthy eating rules.
By all means promote healthy eating. However, part of the healthy eating concept should allow for the occasional treat. Unless you teach children self discipline, wrt having treats on occasions without "binging", they will never learn self control.
Needless to say this absurdly hard line policy will only put the children off "healthy" eating, and make the teachers look like miserable old fools.
The staff at the school should be thankful that this was a harmless birthday indulgence. Some less well brought up kids at that age would have been cracking open a can of cider and sniffing some glue in celebration.
Punishing Olivia for a harmless birthday treat sends entirely the wrong message.
BTW, the best birthday cake my mum ever made was a chocolate Swiss roll fashioned in the shape of a space rocket, covered in chocolate and set on a "moonbase".
