Very few things chap my butt as much as this issue! A school district that receives most of my property tax, in Bradley County, 60 percent of our property taxes go to the Department of Education and they have the audacity to tell my kid what he or she can or cannot eat at a public school! The meals we pay for, the children we would sacrifice everything for and they want to tell this poor kid in NORTH CAROLINA that he can’t eat his turkey sandwich, banana, apple juice and a small bag of chips that some loving parent has packed for him!
My lord in heaven there has to be a stopping point to this madness! This is not in Iran folks, this is not in California, the land of decadent libtards, this is in neighboring North Carolina, just a few miles from us!
A state official took this kids meal away from him, told him it was not nutritious enough and hands him a bucket of chicken parts rolled in flour, deep fried in lard and tells him this is the best meal for him! B-U-L-L-S-P-I-T!!!!!
Where in the hades is the outrage! A nation of sheep we have become! Can you imagine what would have been said about this 50 years or so ago? There would have been someone hung on the courthouse lawn at dawn!
This is your children they are picking on now! The Department of Agriculture in cahoots with the Dept of Human Services joining Michelle Obamas Healthy Kid Initiative and you get the Federal government telling you what you can pack in a lunch bag and then taking that away and giving your child a cup of chicken nuggets! Only the government could mess this up this bad!
Here is the rest of the story! I can’t keep getting mad while people act like sheep and allow this to happen on our beloved country! It’s gotta stop, but it want stop till the people speak up loudly and frequently! Oh well, tell your kids to enjoy the nuggets!
Preschooler’s homemade lunch replaced with nuggets
Published February 14, 2012 | FoxNews.com
A Hoke County preschooler was fed chicken nuggets for lunch because a state worker felt that her homemade lunch did not have enough nutritional value, according to a report by the Carolina Journal.
The West Hoke Elementary School student was in her More at Four classroom when a state agent who was inspecting lunch boxes decided that her packed lunch — which consisted of a turkey and cheese sandwich, a banana, apple juice and potato chips — “did not meet U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines,” the Journal reports.
The decision was made under consideration of a regulation put in place by the 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.
“When home-packed lunches do not include all of the required items, child care providers must supplement them with the missing ones,” the Journal reports.
The student’s mother told the Journal she received a note from the school about the incident and was charged $1.25 for the cafeteria tray, from which her daughter only ate three chicken nuggets.
The note explained how students who did not bring “healthy lunches” would be offered the missing portions and that parents could be charged for the cost of the cafeteria food, the Journal reports.
The mother, who was not identified in the report, expressed concern about school officials telling her daughter that she wasn’t “packing her lunch properly!”
