Banning birthday parties is not a bad idea. But not for obesity reasons. How would you feel if your birthday came up and your parents were either too busy at work or too pinched in the budget to provide a cupcakes for as many as 30? It is a bit like wearing uniforms. Maybe a little duller visually, but cuts the competitive atmosphere.
