The trend in many schools is to being in store-baked goodies in the original packaging when celebrating a birthday or special occassion. I do understand the reason: too many allerigies out there. Also, you may have sickos who put poisons into home-baked goodies. I understand, but don't agree. I'm the kind of mom who loves to bake cupcakes for my son's birthday. At his preschool last year, I asked if I was allowed to bring in homebaked cupcakes or if they had to be store bought. Yay! I was allowed to make homemade cupcakes. At his previous daycare, goodies had to be store bought. At my son's current elementary school, everything is to be store-bought.
Thoughts? Opinions? Does store bought goodies really prevent allergies over a box of Betty crocker cake mix because of the ingredient list? Or is it to protect against evil harm-doers with sickening our kids with poison?
