Too often risk averse parents and schools wrap kids in cotton wool to the point where they don’t develop the power to judge risk and make their own decisions.
I agree, but find such a stance hilarious from the party that set out to remove choice in so many areas, especially around risk. I commented:

Hard to see that the party that doesn’t even trust a kid to decide on whether or not to have a pie, is about to roll back nanny state,
