Geez, threads like this remind me why I didn't log on for so long!
Last week, I painted my 2 year old sons nails, he very rarely wears shoes and my only issue with fairy bread is that I would be jealous! I don't know if he wears shoes at childcare, but it wouldn't even cross my mind to be concerned if he wasn't wearing any. I doubt I could keep 20 kids in their shoes all day!
I think if your child is coming home happy and cared for, your probably just causing more stress for yourself by micromanaging what happens when he's in childcare.

Sorry I just don't see the big deal with it.
I'm not saying that there isn't a weight problem in our country. But this thread was about a one off piece of sugary bread.
Gosh as a teacher I've done lessons using m&ms and chocolate. I don't think that caused the national obesity crisis.

What if my daughter were allergic to it? Would it be OTT then?
The problem is there is such a lack of respect for how one chooses to educate their own children in terms of nutrition.
In my eyes it's not trivial at all. I work hard to teach my child the importance of eating right and lo and behold, her teacher is handing her chocolate. Really? Surely I'm not the only one who sees a problem here?? ðŸ˜–ðŸ˜–ðŸ˜–ðŸ˜–

As for the allergies thing, it's completely different. I've been allergic to eggs since I was a child and there was never any allergy awareness like there is nowadays. The responsibility to avoid eating food containing eggs was completely my own.
These days teachers and day care educators are made aware of children with allergies and I'm sure they wouldn't provide a treat laden with allergens should they know a child in their class/school could get seriously ill from being in contact with it.

For every obese 3 year old there are probably 2-5 fussy children who barely eat anything and probably another 2-3 who eat well and something sweet in moderation won't kill them.

I wouldn't have an issue if it was occasionally on the menu. Especially if the menu was mostly healthy.
I apologise if I'm wrong and please disregard the following if it's not you, but are you the same person that posted about shoes and nail polish? Given these issues are so early on, I'd be questioning whether this is the right centre for your child.
