Does Michelle Obama know about this? Texas abolishes state rules against sweets in school

Score one for freedom over the nanny state.

Newly elected Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller appeared on “Fox & Friends” this weekend to explain his announcement last week that he eliminated state bans on bringing sweets to school.

The Texas Department of Agriculture has abolished all rules and guidelines that would stop a parent from bringing cupcakes, cookies or snacks to school,” Miller said in a news release Monday. “I’m announcing that I am giving full amnesty to the cupcakes in Texas. I’m also granting full pardon to pies and cookies and brownies and cakes and homemade candies.”

School districts will now have authority to decide what snacks are allowed in school.

Miller told the hosts Sunday that government intervention in school snacks hasn’t worked, and lifting the sweets ban was something he could do quickly before moving on to more pressing matters.

“We believe in local control, individual responsibility and freedom from burdensome government regulation,” Miller told host Tucker Carlson. “Government intervention hasn’t worked. We’re getting out of the school mandate business.”

Victory is sweet.
