School Lunch

NO LUNCH FOR YOU

If you send your child to school with a packed lunch, most likely you are packing your child’s favorite foods and it’s probably healthy.

That’s what a mother of a preschooler in North Carolina was doing when she packed her child’s lunch.

However, the state agent who inspect school lunches at the school felt that the preschoolers lunch did not have enough nutritional value and made the child eat chicken nuggets.

The state agents decision was made under consideration of a regulation put in place by the Division of Child Development and Early Education at the Department of Health and Human Services, which requires all lunches served in pre-kindergarten programs to meet USDA guidelines.

The policy says: When home-packed lunches do not include all of the required items, child care providers must supplement them with the missing ones.

 

So what was in the lunchbox?

A turkey and cheese sandwich, a banana, apple juice and potato chips — apparently those do not meet U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines.

On top of forcing the nuggets on the child, the mother was charged $1.25 for the cafeteria tray, from which her daughter only ate three chicken nuggets.
