Thank you for posting this. I've been a bit concerned over my son's school lunches. Mostly because he was recently diagnosed to be lactose
intolerant. I went to a great effort to get milk items removed from his lunches. They needed a doctor's note so I provided one (they said FDA
guidelines require them to have milk so I needed a doctor's letter to get them to stop).
Unfortunately, I realized a month later they are still giving him dairy products. I couldn't figure out why he kept suffering from constipation and
vomiting during the week and it turns out to be the milk he was not supposed to be having.
I've tried packing his lunches but he is 5, school is a new thing to him, and he gets concerned not being like everyone else so he was ditching his
lunch box and going through the line every day to get a tray so he could be like the other kids, unbeknown to me. lol I went and had lunch with him
today to show him to get a juice box instead of a milk box.
I guess that's a bit different from what you're talking about, though. So they are knowingly offering tainted food? Or it's just something that
keeps happening and they're not being proactive to stop it and are concealing facts when it happens? I was a bit confused by that so if you could
clarify, I'd really appreciate it. Unfortunately, I'm a 'helicopter parent' and like to keep up with these things.
