Girl banned from selling home-baked treats at a school cake sale – because her mum did not have a 'food hygiene certificate'. Is this 'health and safety' gone mad or a valid point?
(Type: photo | Published: 2013-07-29T14:15:08+0000)
[david j air] - Put them in a tin, send them to us troops over in British Forces Cyprus!! We'll send you the money and your empty tins back with our next demand We don't care about hygiene certificates!.. I've used the same mess-tin and fork for years and never washed it once
[emma louise] - What the hell? Next thing you know you'll have to have a food hygiene certificate for cooking meals for your own families!
[sharon lance] - For how long have parents and children been baking cakes and biscuits at home for school cake sales??? It may be a valid point technically but this is a bit ridiculous too!
[tracy cake] - there are a few homes I wouldn't want to eat cakes from.....
[caroline kavanagh] - If you can't bake cakes for a cake sale the school shouldn't be having a cake sale!
[jen holland] - Health and safety is gettin way out of hand...bloody hell makes me wonder how we all made it to adult hood!!
[kellyann marie kay] - They don't moan when parents have to take sandwiches into school for the kids Christmas parties. This counrty has gone to the dogs!
[sharon coppin] - OMG having read this glad that my daughter has left school now its ridiculous, there was a time when no one had even heard of Health and Safety other than those who did it for a job!!! Kids played out all day, made mud pies, got their knees dirty, hands and whatever else dirty came in ran their hands under the tap in a fashion wiped on the towel and sat down to eat their dinner, no one cared about Health and Safety way back when, not being funny but if children don't come into contact with germs then how are they suppose to fight them????? Schools have gone mad from banning children from playing conkers and other violent sports lol, to this, although its not just schools businesses are in the same vote Health and Safety is taking over the world!!!!
[michael frost] - Remember standing at open bus stop in middle of winter in my short pants for routemaster open back bus to go to school which was freezing cos no central heating,praying for dinner and mi glass of water served up by a cheerful dinner lady,no hairnet or latex gloves,but chocolate sponge and custard to die for,then out to the concrete playground,in the snow,having snowball fights.NO school runs or certificates,just plain schooldays for ordinary,healthy schoolkids.This is just another example of white collar morons justifying over the top salaries.
[brian f w lees] - makes me laugh...i mean didnt the supermarkets all have relevant documentation yet we all ended up eating horsemeat...absolutely ridiculous
[maurice perry] - do I need to get a heath and safe certificate to cook for my GRANDCHILDREN???????????????????????????
[andy avfc jeffries] - How bloody pathetic country is a joke
[jason knowler] - common sense.....if the cake or people don't look good / clean, don't eat.
[stuart nixon] - bloody stupid , wont be able to go for a dump without certificate soon!!!!!!!!!!!
[sharon jacklin] - Not sure how this country survived the war years without all these certificates and all the red tape!! This country has gone mad.
[stephanie a murphy] - OMG our school crys for home bakes for the school fairs wot they have this is just silly i think! the world is gone BONKERS!!
[toni andjack o'brien] - well it is a school cake sale..aint that what u meant to do..sell cakes..for goodness sake health and safety need to get a bloody grip
[hazel kerrie oconnor] - Utterly Ridiculous! What would the school prefer, REAL cakes made with REAL ingredients or mass produced crud that is just hydrogenated fat and refined sugar in a paper case. When my daughter's school ask for cakes for a cake sale or class party, I ALWAYS make them. I flatly refuse to buy cakes from a shop because I don't want my kids eating all those preservatives. I thin the school are being stupid, and frankly they are missing out on a valuable lesson for the kids. If they want cakes for a cake sale why not get the kids to bake them in a home economics lesson. That way they will not only begin to learn how to cook but also be able to take pride in the knowledge that they are helping their school make money.
[anne lewsaz johnson] - bloody hell fire....,, get a friggin grip......we'll be needing a certificate to feed our own kids next.
god forbid if we was still a generation who didn't gave fridges and hanged dead rabbits in the larder!!!!
[sharon jacklin] - Institutes asking for shop bought cakes is madness!! Who knows what is in them, look at the horse meat scandal.
[laurabidingcitizen simpson] - A shame, but valid point.
[pam crooks] - Definately health and safety gone mad. I am of the generation that climbed trees, played conkers and drank from the garden hose! Somehow I managed to survive.
[steven cowley] - And no doubt those crying out "pathetic" or "pefetic" as some choose to spell it would be the first in line to be shouting for compo had their child become unwell after eating one. Its not 'health & safety gone mad' its back covering, something which has become necessary nowadays due to people feeling the world owes them something whenever something goes wrong!
[angela dale] - next will be told need hygiene certificate to COOK at home
[edward german] - Health and Safety gone mad does this mean every home has to have a food hygiene certificate for fear of poisoning the family, what happened years ago when street parties were the norm and everyone enjoyed themselves, no casualties then, wake up school fools.
[gill marshall] - I ll av em!! I bloody love homemade fairy buns me!!!! Wonder if all the church fetes and coffee mornings which support charities,that I go to, have a certificate!??!!? Honestly the buns and cakes are usually made by dear old ladies, who were taught in school years ago,to make cakes, and they are the best,I've never seen anyone suffer!
[tracey mockeridge] - I must say I never buy cakes unless I kno where they have come from.. I made the mistake once and saw the kitchen of some one who I thought would be clean etc.... never again
[nick smith] - If someone bought cakes at a school, baked by a parent at their home, and there was a food poisoning outbreak, everyone would soon be changing their opinions ! What if they have a cat, and the cat gets on the worktops, and you find a cat hair in a cake you bought at a school ? Those of us who work in schools, follow extremely strict guidelines, which are totally wasted if food is brought into school from places that don't ! Food hygiene is EXTREMELY SERIOUS !
[jacqueline robertson] - This is pathetic !!! If your child was friendly with the family and they offered them a cake would you make sure they had a certificate? I better not cook the family meal tonight! !!
[kimberly rae calamito] - In the US most schools have the same policy not only because of hygiene but because crazy people can put things in baked goods that can be harmful. I dont agree as i love to bake but it is what it is
[maggie nowlan] - Understand the frustration but its not schools policy it's 'health & hygiene', I work at school in catering & have to take 4 hr exam every year for 'working with safety' in kitchen and 'health & hygiene' etc to be certain we know all regulations. If you get a child go down with Salmonella through food not cooked properly brought in by a child... The parent would soon be blaming the school.... It's a 'no win' situation !
[lesley sinclair was hill] - Do u know what, it's no wonder there are so many more allergies these day kids are not allowed to get in contact with Germs. If they get dirty the social services say they are not being looked after properly,let kids be kids for Gods sake,when my kids were KIDS they used to go with their friends picking up chewing gum off the paths with lolly pop sticks, my kids were never ill, did anyone else remember doing this?were u ill????
[charlene smyth] - Her kitchen was more than likely more clean than the schools kitchen!!
[les scott-maynard] - Gone mad all schools raise funds this way don't stop it
[mary berry] - This health and safety craps gone mad
[kerry hipkiss] - I can understand the point that some homes are filthy and I wouldn't want my child eating from there it would be nice to think that people knew how to keep their he's clean and tidy
[caz ashton] - How sad, home made stuff has been sold at fete's all over the country for decades, wont be able to breath shortly, get a grip for Gods sake !!
[amanda wilkins] - Health and Safety's gone mad.
[carla bland] - it's pathetic!!!!
[beccie louise anne king] - She cudda put weed or owt in it tbh
[laura carter] - It's a school bake sale for goodness sake!!
[trudy bisceglia] - Gone mad, what about church bazaars and summer fete's surely not everyone who bakes for these has a food hygiene certificate.
[wayne acathan] - It's only madness because 'the norm' has been challenged. To be fair, there are some parents I would not want cooking for me. How do we.know if she washed hands after taking a crap or if her equipment was properly clean, let alone whether it was cooked properly.
[jeanette grantham] - The worlds gone bludy mad!
[ian robinson] - It's stupid, do u need one of those certificates to feed ur kids, I think not
[sam harbourne] - I thought that was the point of bake sale for you and your parents to sell home made things :)
[flo price] - Yes it is totally gone mad....
[lee sparky fillingham] - Oust the government and councils n bring in UKIP bloody doo gooooders everywhere
[sharon reid] - I personally don't buy things like this at fairs or school events..
[angela dale] - so wot happens wen people do all these fancy cakes for raffles or wotever what happens then

[jane mcgaffney] - The kitchen looks pretty clean to me. Wake up world and stop Molly coddling everyone and everything.
[anne nolan] - you dont have a food hygiene cert if you have a coffee morning for your friends, and mothers used to do cakes for school years ago what is this country coming to xxxx
[yolanda stanberry] - Wot next camera in all our house so the government can watch us all the time it's getting bloody silly, why can't they leave everything alone
[paul speed] - One word......pathetic!
[pamela shaw] - what can you say,its stupid,do all us mums need a hygiene certificate??years ago we had to make cakes to send to school.xx
[carolyn archer] - for donkeys years this has been going on , just look back nothing went that wrong , and we only had a pantry to put stuff in , and there was not all these cleaning products , we had ajax under the sink . dads worked on builing sites and got on with it , your not even allowed to wear shorts or take your shirt off now . this country has gone to pot !!
[sandra livermore] - A valid point. The school would probably be held responsible if anyone got food poisoning. I have seen plenty of kitchens in my time. that I would not want to eat anything from.
[alan harden] - Kids cant do anything these days it such a shame on there human rights for being children.......
[georgina sneed] - She should Have said "ok i won't sell them I'll give them away" personally sounds like a form of bullying its that pathetic ... How can you have a cake sale without the donation of home made cakes... Pfffft joke!
[stephen reilly] - or The Sun how about reporting on real things happening like how the government are oppressing the CITIZENS of this nation by constantly helping the ones breaking the law, by not deporting immogrants (because they don't have a passport) they got here without 1 send them right back, someone getting arrested over a comment on facebook or twitter, but paedophiles and rapists get tiny sentences and let out on bail to do it again, never heard of sticks and stones. all these celebraties being arrested over something that allegedly happened 40-50 years ago where there is no proof but a girl who was raped by someone who isn't famous 2 months ago cant get anything done, report on those stories and get the wholke story
[ann-marie potts] - Lol. I work in a kitchen. Got nvqs & food hygiene certificates, but my dd's school ask for 'shop bought cakes only" to be taken in for parties etc. Saves me having to bake them, so fine.
[tina xcaseyx gallagher] - so wot about when they wot things for chritsmas partys from home nothings said then
[rachel holding] - Its nothing to do with health and safety. Its food hygeine .
[james smith jnr] - obvious being at school you know what kids live in a clean house pmsl so i dont see a problem with this hahah
[lisa johnson] - ridiculous but only surprised they were not banned for not having labels showing ingredients this product may or may not contain nuts!
[rodney humphrey] - Gone mad! The fun police step in again! !
[sally matthews] - stupid, the Primary Sch my Kids went to had Cake Sales on a regular basis
[mel haynes] - Omg this country is a joke! Xx
[nick roden] - health&safety gone mad soon be a nanny state
[tanya taylor] - omg the best cakes at these schools are the ones mums n nans take in
[martin roll] - UNfortunately, there is a legal liability that the school faces in teh event of someone falling sick, and if they did not insist on this, they would be deemed to be negligent and therefore inbreach of Insurance requirements .....
[bev garth] - pathetic ,obviously food hygiene certificates work, that's why so many people end up with food poisoning from burger vans and restaurants.Why not allow the public to make their own decisions and choose where they buy food from,if people are concerned they wont buy the cakes
[jenny port] - Omg never heard of anything so pathetic!! Whatever is this country coming to? They really are thinking of rules for every tiny little thing! What next we have to have food hygiene certificate to have friends round for dinner???
[christine jesson] - Its mental political correctness
[debbie smyth] - we have cupcakes but this country are weird
[jonathan piers butler] - Very Valid and did she have a cooks hat on when baking and gloves.Did she have appropriate H&S signs in the kitchen.Were they cooked at the correct temp and stored properly?
[debbie smyth] - valied poit not that i agree, but if someone comes down with food poisning they can sue you, they could have eaten any old thing but u would get the blame
[carwyn j provis] - Stupid School, nice way to encourage children to be creative. That lesson must have been hard to swallow!!
[debbie oshea] - I used to do cookery at my sons schools in the 90s, I never had a food hygiene certificate, I was just helping or the kids never done cookery, no one died that I know of...lol
[kiko roble] - Before we worry aBout food hygiene lets make sure we start eating health...
[william reed elearning] - Since we believe that this person might continue to sell her yummy cupcakes, we are happy to offer her a free food hygiene certification course. Can anyone kindly provide us with her contact details with regards to the paperwork?
[cathy leena] - Hold on I just re-read that.....they couldn't bake CAKES for a CAKE SALE...uh???? what was they meant to send in then.......tins of tuna??
[cathy leena] - You'll need a certificate to send a packed lunch in soon.....absolute madness
[lucy marsden] - erm its been this way for years!!! Not really news!!
[earl maloney] - Sad how as normal people have to now act and live like them...??
[stephanie nash] - more and more stupid laws Nanny government what ever western country you are in

[adrian slack] - a cup of tea a £! with a free cake ha problem solved !!
[harriet louise barratt-connor] - I thought it was only the school/organization that had to have a hygiene certificate rather than the individual? I used to make cakes all the time for my school sale of work.
[stephen threadwell] - its gone mad dont for get thay took away the milk from the kids in the schools ? that takes the cake an eat it lololool
[carole parks] - Unfortunately thats the law I have had a food business for years and always had to have a certificate so you should as well!!!!
[janice mcmanus] - So whatever happened to any kids/families etc.. Who got home baking which was donated for raffles..fetes etc.....erm ..nothing...health and safety has gone a bit OTT over the years. We were all every bit as healthy then...if not more so. Next thing we know we be expected to have a certificate to have our grandkids..neices..nephews to have a sleepover. Or maybe the government want us to buy specially approved food packs they can hav...lol..where does it all end.

[ann-marie tait] - that's crap...way too health and safety conscious xxx anyone who cares to cook for a school cares what she does when shes cooking ggrrrr xxxxx
[feisal garrison warsame] - Thats sound ridiculous,Mothers are all known for love and good caring when it comes to kids,it doesn't matter who the kids belong to,there was no any reason for her to be banned !
[christine douglas] - i bet that the eu for you.
[sarah cox] - My son school accept home made fairy cakes from parents to sell on the play ground to raise money for school toys. So??? None of the kids complain about stomach problem after eating those cakes. Even they bring they home made cakes for birthday. So???? I don't see what's the problems.
[maggie garland] - What is this world coming to? As a child the fete cake stall was nothing but home baked goodies.....this world has gone completely cuckoo if you ask me. Home baked had always been better than those in the shops...much less chemical preservatives too.
[shannen wells] - that's jus stupid not every1 has a food hygiene certificate but people still cook treats for other people no1 falls ill coz they actually know hoe 2 cook poor little girl
[dawn ava spencer] - seems daft but could come from a right minging kitchen, people would soon moan if their kids got sick from them, they'd moan at the school :)
[john long] - valid point, i like to know who baked them
[suzanne shields] - How stupid homemade cakes are always best
[tina buckley] - Gone mad, its a one off occasion, not a business!!
[anne shepherd] - this country is going crazy
[lynda williams cardiff] - How pathetic our mums and nans aways made cakes for school fetes, christmas, church bazaars etc crazy
[emily butler] - someones at our local school made home baked cakes and spilled washing powder in the mixture and sold them at our local school so for safety reasons i do think they should
[john gardner] - When I first started school as a junior, my best mate was a kid called Smudge Smith. He used to bring sandwiches that were really home made made. The bread was made in his house, so was the butter, so was the cheese and so was the ham and veal... yes he lived on a Dairy farm in sticks surrounding Warminster (Upton lovell if I remember correctly), Wiltshire. They were fantastic sarnies. In fact our teacher, who incidently was an Army officers wife, insisted on Smudge bring her a sandwich or a block of cheese for lunch time. Not at anytime was hygene or friggin certifcate discussed...
[wayne everitt] - It is total madness for sure, jobsworth for the sake of it.
[janice cameron] - Totally ridiculous
[glenn cooper] - the person who made this decision needs to get the sack because common sense really cant be found on their cv.what an idiot
[valerie killow] - Valid point would you eat cakes out off a bakery if they didn't have a certifacate
[heather thornton] - Absoloutley ridiculous, the bloody country has gone mad!!
[isobel scott bertie] - its ridiculous, guess i will have to get a food hygiene certificate to cook my kids meals,

[anthony rich mills] - Why ban her well in that case ban all these the do baking for church Fairs or summer fairs
[michelle hutchison] - It's the same for every one
[jen walker] - Think it's ridiculous, yes health and safety again,just as well it wasn't like that when I was younger.
[dawn wright] - What the hell, we have been doing this for years and never came to any harm, what are we teaching the future generation
[dannii shexiprincess dennis] - Food and hygiene certificate is required to do cakes for school cake sale? Omg. Health and safety are OTT. Why wrap us up in cotton wool? May a swell just say we can't do anything even then still be a hazard to them.
[faye rock] - will they ban selling lemonade from yard sales too lol oh yea they prob already did lol
[faye rock] - omg we didnt die when we made cupcakes at school...... i say let the people cook there baked goods ...... i understand the world is worse but if they wanted to poison us there are way more means then this ..........
[maggie nowlan] - All cakes & biscuits at my school are made by catering staff. All dinners have to be cooked & probed to be certain it's correct temperature to sell, everything has to be logged meticulously, very time consuming but we do so, one because its the regulations & two would hate some one to get food poisoning.. How many restaurants, take aways do this I wonder !
[jan barnett] - Don't recall anyone being ill from any of this and the WVS did it for years!!! Next we won't be able to cook at home cos we'll need a ruddy bit of paper!!! It's bureaucracy got mad.
[andy coyle] - And all the other Mums did? Home made cakes are so much better than shop ones. Who the hell said this?
[ginette kneller] - this is mental. I always cook for my Niece and the school fetes and the teachers love my cake. Sometimes they do not make it out for sale, the teachers buy them
[vanessa baker] - FFS What the HELL is this world coming to !?!?!?!?!?!?!
[lyn eldred] - What a load of codswallop Health and Safety lot should have been around in WW2. We ate what we could get. Washed flies off meat and rubbed it vinegar, had windfalls, cut the mould off cheese, sour milk was strained to make cream cheese and we played on bomb-sites. I am still here and reasonably healthy to prove it. No syndromes or behavioural problems. They were cured with a slap and confined to "barracks" for a month. If you were going to misbehave, you did it near the end of the month =D
[mairtin donaghey] - Food hygiene is simple and it should not be needed to sell a few cakes. Why dont you give them away and ask for a donation.
[jennifer s thomas] - Health and safety has a lot to answer for. How on earth did we manage to survive without them!!!!
[deborah thornley] - gone mad, send em to the troops x
[karen bayley] - how stupid ffs get a grip and in the real world...there was no such thing years ago
[margaret knights] - Don't blame the school, blame parents for suing schools for the most ridiculous things
[jodie dyer] - Cakes sales have been going on for how many years? Are they going to stop now then?
[michelle ferridge] - What has this world come to when you can't even bake cakes with out a certificate :(
[viv skidmore] - England has to many busy body's and little Hitler's . Next they will require a certificate to cook for family party's.
[laura white] - omg how pathetic is that, i have done stuff recently and how do they expect people to raise funds if they put these things in the way
[tojo melville] - Would be good to see hair covered for food being sold....good idea to send them to the troops...
[joy swindells] - Very very sad world we live in
[ed carruthers] - Health & Safety - Stupidity at its worst !!
[matt stickley] - Getting out of hand now. They must have no work if they're focusing on this type of thing! It's hard to picture the decision making process. A group of people sat round a table go... Yeah that's a good idea! Ruin Britannia just that little bit more.
[debs palfreeman] - Health & safety gone mad, this country sucks!!!!
[claire walters] - Thats What the cake stalls used to be based on...Parents baking at home and selling them for school funds !!!! Get a grip !!!

[sian ulett] - its just stupidf
[carol marira was pyrah] - are they mad or what .... this is a joke .i encouraged my lads to cook when they were young and they never poisoned anyone .for gods sake
[allison templeton] - My god when I wad a child I played in muck made muck pies ate muck pies
[kim hoblyn] - Know a few people that have a certificate, but does not mean to say that what they have learned is put into practice!
[allison templeton] - The world is gone nuts
[ian mcclintock] - Utter madness!!!
[mike coleman] - Lol @ David. It's all gone totally barmy. The sooner we get rid of these bloody do gooders, the better we will all be. Er I will also sample your cakes, the lot in one foul swoop :)
[brad val bradshaw] - This is absolute rubbish. It is The Health and Safety at WORK Act, and does not apply. Jobsworths with a little bit of authority on a power trip!
[frankie wells] - I think you will find it is valid. You can't SELL food without a food and hygiene certificate and it's ridiculous that you people obviously don't know any regulations as it clearly says it in the FOOD AND HYGIENE REGULATIONS 1974 and that's how long it's been around. I'm 22 and I know this. How dumb people are!
[val hargrave] - What is this world coming til for god sake ?
[stephen theoldgit addisson] - WTF are they real, yes good idea put them in a tin and sent them troops and tell the School to stuff it where the Sun Don't Shine!
[hayley wortley] - Ridiculous..next we will have to have a hygiene certificate to cook the family meal every night.
[nancy skelton] - This is getting beyond a joke, home baking has always been a fundraiser, people have a choice whether to buy or not. I bake lots for various fundraising events
[chelsee-anne bennett] - I agree - if your cooking for a group of people get a food hygiene certificate it doesn't take long... and its simple. What about allergies, or food poisoning? How do you know it wasn't prepared in the filthiest kitchen yet your happy for your child to eat it..... I wouldn't want my child eating anything from a school bake sale unless I'd seen where it was prepared... and how....
[irene johncena chester] - i thought cake sales in schools was where the kids and there mams make home made cakes not buy in cakes in shop and bring them into schol whats the point
[havanarocks streetteam] - Think the msm are running out of things to report. Why has this made the news. Just keep reading sheeeple
[keith webb] - The worlds gone mad for gods sake have you seen how many of the food estabishments with the hygene cert closed because of bugs dirty premises and bad codes of practice. I would rather choose this young ladies efforts.
[jayne allen] - Well iv heard it all wat crap
[michael frost] - In prehistoric times,before the invention of the mobile phone,ipod ect,and kids now rule the world,does anyone remember when kids actually spoke,politely,without swearing,to adults,didnt do drugs or drink until 16+, didnt smoke in public and played hopscotch,leapfrog,skipping,tag,hide an seek,football,netball,and spent the dinner hour talking and giggling or running around the playground like headless chickens.Good God the health and safety cretins would have a field day!! (obvioulsly with no refreshment tent!!)
[laura sian north] - When its my daughters bday we are not allowed to make home made cakes
[janet petheram] - Nothing to do with HSE. Just the school coming up with a poor excuse. Check out myths on HSEs website- will help to sort the lies like this from the truth!
[lisa mclean] - Ridiculous !! If people r willing to buy them why not let them them x
[kerry grimes] - To be fair you choose to take the risk of eating baked goods that parents have donated, the school should not be liable, how silly!
[julie tallentire] - Absolutely bonkers ...
[sarah hadlington kemmings] - Health n safety gone mad but. Tbh i don't let my kids eat stuff unless i know who's made it n where its cone from at parties etc i am well careful with what they put on their plate
[tony willis] - Tell you the truth. I take one of your delicious cakes. No problems at all.
[kerry grimes] - It's a cake sale to raise money, the school should not ask for donations if they require people to have a health and hygiene cert!!
[kerrie andolivia walder] - Stop blaming the government & look at ourselves!!! What's the first thing we think of when something goes wrong??? Who can we SUE!!!!! we created this problem now we moaning cause its biting us in the bum!!!! I mean we think nothing of suing the NHS......
[jason merryman] - Health and safety gone mad.
[gwen crick] - effin ridiculous never heard of anything so stupid ,
[georgina dixon] - what kids has a hygiene certificate in school the teacher dosen,t ask for one of the kids but she expected to do cooking in school time if i was kids i would refuse to do her cooking lesson on the point i haven,t got a Hygiene Certificate and see what the school got to say about that
[marilyn beautyman] - stupid wash ur hands keep hair back an ur be fine
[lynne hanner] - the reason kids get so sick is because we are too clean
[jan lawler] - This country has gone mad.. To solve the problem. The government should pay for everyone to have food hygeine courses problem.solved
[nick boyall] - this countrys a joke !!!
[georgina dixon] - how stupid my granddaughter makes cakes and is incouraged by the school to sell them if she good leave her alone she isn,t harming anyone
[samantha biggs] - Great no more cake sales at schools ect...... Oh sorry did I just breath then... I'll stop right away!!!!!
[kerry smith] - absolute bloody madness x
[lee hirst] - Health and elf gone mad!!!!
[brian boulnois] - I can see both arguments to this, it does seems seem a bit extreme yet do you know where it was cooked? What happen if there is a out break of food poison who is responsible the school or the person thats cooked the cakes, people have died from serious cases of it. You could say this the "where there is a blame there is claim culture" at play and the school are covering there own backs against any claims.
[pauline greenfield] - Bloody stupid PC brigade! They need to be a life. Poor kid
[amanda baxter] - I dont know many people who have a hygine certificate that sell and school fairs etc but its getting way beyond silly now we wont be allowed to do anything for our kids before long.
[adam sutcliffe] - Anyone on here who agrees with school should be hunted down and deported fast
[midge midgley] - Pathetic... simply pathetic. Any home that's going to have parents willing to help cook for a cake sale is going to be hygienic. What is this country coming to???
[emma jane mills] - I'm ashamed to be British and I can't wait to leave this counrty! You can't do anything without someone going over the top and complaing about everything the country has gone completely mad. And if your one of them moaning people who whines about hygiene etc then simply don't eat the cakes why spoil it for everone else I don't remember anyone getting ill from a bake sale when I was in school. Great Britain stopped be great along time ago!
[irene baylis] - What a load of bloody cobblers ....so so stupid ...who are these people do they come from the same planet as us ...
[roger turner] - these clowns need a slap, what next ? I thought you only needed a food hygiene cert if you were running it at you job ??? wake up
[debi hamilton] - Bloody ridicules , health and safety gone mad!!!
[susan purchase] - Same thing in Essex. All their cakes for school have to be bought!!!!
[ian mckay] - does that also mean kids cant go to school cos they might learn something against health ans so called safety

[charlotte hickman] - Does this apply to WI cake sales too?
[diane widger] - funny how we all ate cakes made by mothers and lived to tell the tale...another brain wave thought up by idiots!
[valerie serowka] - this is daft. why? there is no reason for this. this is why there are fete's home made cakes come from people's homes and i think it great. i thought school would be encouraging their pupils to do this. dotn they like praising children. sounds bit off the way they are acting
[val simpson] - Absolutely ridiculous,
[christopher morton] - valid point, you can take donations for cakes, but not allowed to sell without certification. it means that companies have to have certified kitchens to make sure we don't get food poisoning
[scott tatum] - Health and safety went mad years ago. This is just another example.
[chelsea-marc dennis] - Wot about religous times for example kids taking veg and fruit and harvest time goodies into Church from home kitchens......

[becci yeboah] - Considering how filthy some takeaways are yet they still allowed to serve food why can't this girl sell Cakes bet their home is much cleaner than takeaway kitchens !but of course government allow dirty takeaways cos they bring in much more revenue for the fat cats!
[daniel t-bag teasdale] - What about all theese ppl who do it for charity at home its bolloks if u ask me
[andrea cochrane] - Haven't been allowed to provide home baked goods for my wee ones school for years. I would rather something homemade than laced with colourings and additives. All food must be wrapped, so crisps and biscuits or mass produced rubbish.
[caz passmore] - My 1st tho was OMG !!! How bloody silly etc ......Then i tho Woo Hoo no more stressing over wot 2 bake & decorate etc 4 selling at School .......

[lee ellis] - As long as the kitchen is clean and the kid clean where is the problem i have never heard of food poisoning from fairy cakes and as for a food hygene certificate you can win one of those from a lucky bag
[dale nicholls] - Or get your bloody nose out of my baked goods
[kim bastable] - so if the schools ask for cakes to be sold and we haven't got the said certificate fund raising is out the window then and the children miss out again gone mad.
