I am constantly amazed at the restrictions that pre-schools put on. My sister has her 2 daughters at a pre-school that has a no chocolate blanket ban. This means no chocolate itself, no chocolate on anything, no chocolate cake, nothing chocoloate flavoured etc etc.
My sister sent the girls to pre-school with some choc-chip muesli bars and they came home with a note that said please don't send these again, no chocolate allowed. For the sake of the 3-4 chips that would actually be in the bars, this is ridiculous... but the one that made me laugh the most: my sister was making a fish cake for one of the girls' birthdays and the recipe said to use M & M's on the top to be the scales. Because of the blanket no-chocolate ban she wasn't allowed to use M & M's, but she was allowed to use Skittles!!! Surely there is just as much sugar in the skittles as there would be in the chocolate!
A bit of common sense would be fantastic! And the chocolate ban can't be due to allergies, because Skittles would be made in a factory where other peanut products are made too.
