Massachusetts state health officials recently recently approved regulations that would prevent bake sales from being held during school and in the 30 minutes before and after school to discourage unhealthy eating habits.
Gov. Deval Patrick has backed down on the regulations after criticism from parents and organizations that say putting restrictions on bake sales would negatively impact fundraising efforts for the schools and nonprofit groups, according to USA Today.
Legislation passed in 2010 will still require schools serve healthy snack options in the cafeterias and limit sugary foods.

Deval Patrick should enforce the bake sale ban to help encourage Massachusetts youth to have healthier eating habits, or should the bake sales still be allowed for fundraising purposes?
