A school has told pupils to stop sucking lollipops that turn their lips and mouths bright blue.
And the message was sent home to parents and carers in a newsletter from the head.
It comes after some children at the Portslade Aldridge Community Academy (PACA) appear to have taken the latest craze a bit too far.
PACA principal Mark Poston wrote yesterday (Monday 23 January): “One message that tutors are sending out to students this morning is to let students know that the current craze for lollipops, including the ones that turn mouths and lips bright blue, has to come to an end.
“We are finding students are eating them, sometimes in a considerable quantity, between lessons.
“The sudden burse of sugar undermines students’ concentration, not to mention the effect on teeth.
“Students will be informed that they will have the lollipops taken from them if they are eating them in school, and/or issued with a time out in break or lunch time.”
One parent said: “It was a bit of fun but a few of the kids have taken a bit too far. I’m glad the school’s on top of it.”
