Although criticized by the Australian Medical Association as "bubble wrapping," new hygiene regulations bans Australian children from blowing out candles on birthday cakes.
The NHMRC is urging childcare centres to stand up to parents who insist on sending a sick child to daycare - even if they have a medical certificate. And daycare staff will now have to wash toys, doorknobs, floors and cushion covers every day.
The new guidelines state children who want to blow out a candle on their birthday should bring their very own cupcake - to avoid blowing germs all over a shared cake.
"Children love to blow out their candles while their friends are singing 'Happy birthday'," the document said. "To prevent the spread of germs when the child blows out the candles, parents should either provide a separate cupcake, with a candle if they wish, for the birthday child and (either) enough cupcakes for all the other children ... (or) a large cake that can be cut and shared."
