PETA wants to get involved in the so-called "cupcake controversy" in Neenah.
The school district won't let kids bring sweets from home to hand out to their class on birthdays or a special occasions anymore. Healthy treats are still allowed.
The animal rights group has a different idea though. PETA spokeswoman Lindsay Wright says the district should ban all animal products and implement a vegetarian school lunch. She says it would be healthier for many kids and go a long way towards helping to fight childhood obesity.
Wright says if the district followed their suggestion it would be fine for students to have an occasional treat.
The group sent a letter to Neenah school Superintendent Jerry Schutz this week, suggesting the change. Schutz says he understands that some people believe in the health benefits of vegetarian meals, but there are many more who support still serving meat. He adds that the current policy only applies to classroom treats, not school lunches.
