Not a nice way to celebrate. Even if it was a ‘one off treat’ for the birthday child for the other children they could be eating it far more often. Plus if the birthday kid thinks of this as a ‘treat’ then something is also wrong. A treat should still be good for you (even if it is not something you could afford everyday); who wants to poison themselves? or encourage their kids to do the same. I don’t think the ‘ok in moderation’ argument applies to these foods. Worse than smoking; and that is not ‘ok in moderation’ either.
