Preschooler’s Homemade Lunch Replaced With Nuggets | Fox News

15 Feb

…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 [Carolina] Journal reports.

    My question is…what are they going to try to control next? Jeez, this is absolutely ridiculous! I seem to remember learning about this one thing when I was in school, oh what was it called…oh yeah! Freedom! What ever happened to that ideal? *sigh*

      I agree wholeheartedly! It’s getting to be ridiculous how invasive the government is in our lives. Sorry I didn’t respond to your post earlier. somehow this and your other comment on the writing tools post got put into my spam folder.

    You would think they’d have better things to do!

      True Gilly! This kind of bureaucratic job is what is quickly bringing our country to its knees. Paying someone to check our children’s lunches at school. I never thought I’d see the day.

    I imagine state agents in most other states are like the New Mexico flavor: someone’s cousin who wanted a less demanding job than working for the highway dept.

      Yes eideard, you are most likely correct. The thing that makes me angry about this is that they even have someone, paid by the government, inspecting the children’s lunchboxes. Somebody call the lunch police! It’s silly. The teacher will notice if someone’s lunch isn’t up to snuff and she can either send a note home to the parent letting them know what is recommended or, if it’s really just horrible which the lunch the child had was a great sack lunch, she could have a cafeteria lunch provided at the expense of the parent. We don’t need a Federal Bureau of Lunch Investigation…
