Palin 'Cookie Bombs' School to Protest Health Push Alaskan blasts 'nanny state' nutrition debate in Pennsylvania By Rob Quinn, Newser Staff Posted Nov 10, 2010 1:44 AM CST Updated Nov 10, 2010 7:59 AM CST 111 comments Comments Sarah Palin speaks at a Tea Party event in Nevada last month. (Getty Images) (Newser) – Who knew nutrition guidelines were a Tea Party bugaboo? Sarah Palin's post-election focus on the issues has gone from monetary policy to ... cookies. The Alaskan brought cookies to a Pennsylvania elementary school yesterday to slam government interference pressing for healthier eating, ABC News reports. Pennsylvania is a "nanny state run amok," she wrote on Twitter, linking to a Pittsburgh Tribune-Review story about a proposal to limit sugary foods at school parties. "Who should be deciding what I eat? Should it be government or should it be parents? It should be the parents," she told a cheering crowd at a fundraiser later that day. Pennsylvania school officials, however, say Palin's characterization of the issue as a "cookie ban" is dead wrong, and that administrators are simply seeking ways to encourage schools to serve more nutritious foods, CNN notes. The Tribune-Review has retracted the story Palin linked to, and has published a correction.
