For many celebrating the much anticipated National Pancake Day, Chelsea Clinton was a bit of a killjoy.
Pancakes adorned with chocolate chips, whipped cream, syrup and even bacon were enjoyed by many who have embraced the annual ode to flapjacks created by the International House of Pancakes.

But Chelsea Clinton found a way to put the brakes on all the drooling on social media as well as make a lot of parents feel guilty for indulging their children.

The former first daughter posted her pancake celebration with a pile of, not very appealing-looking, spinach pancakes.

@ChelseaClinton please don’t ruin food. Pancakes have no spinach. Plus you need maple syrup
