New York Times published today an article by Sarah Kershaw p.14 Week in Review section titled, " Don't Even Think of Touching That Cupcake". The piece discussed, in part, how schools cope with sweet treats in the classroom in this current environment of health consciousness. However, the author states, and I quote,
"While the merits of banning goodie bags filled with Reese's and Skittles seem obvious - especially at a time when the risk of childhood diabetes () is high for American children - many parents draw the line at cupcakes."
Please consider joining me in writing to the Times to alert them to this sloppy error by thier journalist. This is not the first such error by the Times but it is one of the most flagrant.
