Mom, My Teacher Threw Away My Lunch…(tear..)

One little ole’ 4-year-old is forced to throw out her packed lunch (and eat a state-dictated cafeteria lunch of chicken nuggets), and all these folks get their panties get in a wad.

Well it does sound peculiar. School official’s at an elementary school in Raeford, North Carolina are apologizing for an incident regarding a teacher’s error in attempting to make sure their student had a nutritious meal.

“The incident happened two weeks ago  The girl’s parents anonymously tipped off a Raleigh TV station and a conservative blogger after the girl brought home her packed lunch uneaten.

Conservatives who see it as yet another example of government overreach leaped on the story, and it reached a pair of North Carolina’s U.S. representatives, Republican Renee Ellmers and Democrat Larry Kissel. They wrote a letter asking U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack to investigate.

“The content of a school lunch provided to a child by their parents should be governed only by the child’s parents, not another government bureaucrat,’’ they wrote in the letter.”

Is this school a little overzealous in their protocol of feeding children balanced meals? (people are calling this school the”lunch bag police”) Check out the rest of this article and you decide.

I can’t say I blame the parent’s for being a bit annoyed (I was a brown bagger in elementary school myself, and I know my own mom wouldn’t have appreciated this one bit.)
