This morning I ran across this story on The Blaze about a four year old girl at a school in North Carolina. Her lunch was determined to not be “healthy” enough by a school monitor. It was taken away from her and she was fed chicken nuggets instead. What was in her brown paper bag that her mom packed for her? a turkey & cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips, and apple juice. Can you believe a mom would send this horribly unhealthy lunch to school for her child?
Growing up my mom always packed my lunches for me and they often consisted of these same kind of meals, except usually we had carrot sticks instead of potato chips. I’m appalled that the girl was fed chicken nuggets and milk as a “healthy” alternative.
What was your typical lunch when you were in school?
