MOM IS SHAMED BY PRESCHOOL FOR PACKING “UNHEALTHY” LUNCH
"This school’s note seems to be a couple steps beyond that line. Yet, despite the negative reactions that the school went too far, this incident is not unique. In 2015, a mom in Colorado was shamed from sending a package of Oreos in her child’s lunch. Another report says a child’s Goldfish crackers were taken away as they were deemed an unhealthy choice for school.
I do understand that kids need proper nutrition in order to learn every day, but maybe not so extreme. And while school districts usually have food guidelines and restrictions established, they should do their best to ensure that parents know the rules before the school year starts so they aren’t caught unaware. This way, parents like me will know to save our kids’ fruit snacks for after school so we all don’t get an angry note sent home in a lunchbox."
