Remember how much fun holiday parties at school were growing up? The last day before Christmas break filled with tons of goodies throughout the day.
Well, now Westford, MA school officials are making holiday parties "bitter".
Oh and kids, leave the Christmas cookies, cakes, candy bars, and soda at home. Instead bring unsweetened juices, popcorn and raisins. Raisins?!
Superintendent Everett Olsen says the ban on holiday sweets has nothing to do with being politically correct rather his motive is simply promoting a healthy lifestyle.
"We aren't trying to take the Christmas out of Christmas. We're not trying to take the enjoyment out of children's lives. We're just trying to act responsible," he told WBZ NewsRadio 1030's Mike Macklin.
The school's goal is to avoid the types of sweets that pile on empty calories and contribute to childhood obesity.
What do you think about banning Holiday treats for one day?
