Palin Opposes Plan to Ban Sweets in Classrooms

Ad Feedback

Former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin is weighing in on a proposal that would ban sweets in Pennsylvania classrooms.

She's warning that it gives the government too much control.

Tuesday night, Palin appeared at a local school fundraiser to offer Pennsylvanians that warning.

The state is considering a set of guidelines that would limit the amount of sweets in schools, and she cited the legislation as evidence of a quote "nanny state."

It's all a part of an ongoing debate over federal government intervention in school nutrition programs.

"Who should be making the decisions what you eat and school choice? Should it be the government or should it be the parents? It should be the parents," Palin said.

Palin lightened the mood by bringing in dozens of cookies for the students.
