Lunchbox police told 4 yr old her lunch that was packed by her mom wasnt "nutritious" enough.

Story from Red White Blue news....
The girl’s turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips, and apple juice did not meet U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines, according to the interpretation of the agent who was inspecting all lunch boxes in her More at Four classroom that day.”

I can see that they want to make sure kids are eating healthy when they get school supplied lunch but tell them they cant eat the lunch their parents serve them.. How is that lunch given to her from her mom not nutritious enough..?!?!? Your thoughts anyone?

Isnt a turkey sandwhich beter for you than chicken nuggets? I mean.. Nuggets are nasty.. You ever see the documentary on how they are made? In short, they squeez a chicken through a screen, soak it in ammonia, then soak it in chicken broth, and mold. Yum!

Sounds pretty damn nutritious to me....I would have killed for a lunch like that growing up. I was one of the poor kids who got the free school lunch. A cheese sandwich ( One slice of American cheese on stale white bread) and one of those school size cartons of skim milk.

3 chicken nuggets? I guess they decided she needed three globs of chemically treated chicken guts to go with her lunch....

Go figure.

I love the hypocrisy of this article.

We send out kids to be educated

So that doesn't include education about nutrition?

Many private schools are also rigid about what the parents send for lunch. While many lunches are healthy, I don't get what is wrong with a turkey and cheese and a banana. Just take away the chips.

Sounds like an overzealous inspector.

And before everyone hops on the bandwagon and grabs their pitchforks, this is one incident at one school out of 40k.

Isnt this sort of illegal? Isnt there a law about talking with minors without parents consent? Wouldnt they have to call the parents before informing a 4 yo that their lunch isnt healthy enough? I mean, I assume the person forcing nuggets on the child is some sort of authority..

This is dangerous.

With the increase of food allergies amongst little ones, the girl could've died from a nugget. There's so many chemicals in a nugget, she could've been allergic to a chemical and not even know or understand it because she's four.

Also, I agree the lunch that the mother packed was healthy. Very balanced and much better than a greasy blob of meat, bread and chemicals.

Ya, that wouldn't happen.

My wife was a tiny little thing, and she ate a lot of salad and a lot of meat, but she never liked grains or breads. The teachers at her school used to assume she was bulimic or something, and they would force her to eat pizza or breads. Well, in high school she developed an auto-immune disease Guillan-Barre, and later during her pregnancy with our second child, it was discovered she has Celiacs disease.

In other words, she CANNOT eat grains and breads! The idiot, fat teachers probably created her health problems by not just letting her eat healthy like she wanted to.

In fact, even today, when she goes to a doctor with health concerns, they immediately want to prescribe anti-depressants, and check her eating habits. She has to educate them each and every time that she isn't depressed, she eats healthy, on a gluten-free diet, and her sore hip, or flu, or whatever is ailing her at the time is not depression and not bulimia. It drives her insane! They want to fix sore muscles and flu symptoms with Xanax and Percocet instead of something useful.

They had their fingers crossed.. What they MEANT was:

"that sandwich is too healthy! eat these chicken nuggets which are probably only 33% chicken, and the remainder is some mystery meat from the factory floor. but don't worry! they washed it with ammonia and bleach, and then re-colored it and added liquid plastic to keep it 'fresh'. then they cooked it, froze it, and mailed it here to the school, which took 2 days, after which we froze it for 2 more days, then RE-FRIED it, and are now trying to pass it off as somehow healthier than your moms sandwich." =)

I just think it is so eff'd up in the country if a kid cant eat a home packed lunch consisting or apply juice, banana , turkey sandwich and chips....

What they need to is go to McDonalds and KFC police them.. Take care of obesity all the way around.. intead of policing 4 year olds and giving them 3 chicken nuggets...

I'll tell you what, if the school did that to my daughter, I would blow up immediately on them.
It is one thing to teach healthy eating habits, but totally another to ENFORCE on a child.

I learned many years ago, that school systems and school boards will ALWAYS push the line. They mean well,
however, it is at times like this when parents need to step in and tell the school board ENOUGH.

I would file a lawsuit.

Very true. We homeschool.. And no, our children aren't "anti-social" nor do they have "development issues".

My son is actually 1 year ahead, and too damn social... so, they lied... lol

So basically i dont understand the demonization of chicken nuggets. Couldn't you just use a small piece of chicken and make it into a nugget?
