Parents Ordered to Sign Permission Slip to Let Kids Eat Oreos


It may seem like a black and creamy white matter, but letting a child eat an Oreo is anything but.

Check out this tweet from a Pennsylvania mom who received a permission slip she received from her child’s school to give the green light for eating an Oreo after a science experiment in which the cookies were going to be used to learn about tectonic plates.

We live in a world where peanut allergies are more rampant in schools than bullying and calls to eat healthy bombard us like announcements over the loudspeaker, but could this be going too far.

What do you think — is the school right for sending the permission slip or is this just a case of being too cautious?
