“They called and said they were shutting us down,” Heather Stirling, Chloe’s mother,: told: the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Officials told Stirling Chloe could continue: selling: cupcakes on the condition that the family “buy a bakery or build her a kitchen separate from the one we have.”

“Obviously, we can’t do that,” Heather Stirling told reporters. “We’ve already given her a little refrigerator to keep her things in, and her grandparents bought her a stand mixer.”

The elder Stirling said that she was willing to get her daughter any necessary licenses or permits to operate a business, but could not meet the health department’s other demands.

“But a separate kitchen? Who can do that?” asked an astonished Stirling.

When reporters approached Amy Yeager, a health department spokeswoman, about the county’s decision to shut down Chloe’s business, she said that she was doing it for the sake of the public.

As always, it’s for the greater good.

While it’s good for children to learn the value of earning a dollar, it’s also important they learn about how government can squash business.
