Should schools be allowed to "Lunch-shame" the food a parent packs for their child?


Recently, a Colorado mom was 'lunch-shamed" by her daughter's school for packing Oreos. School officials sent home a letter: “This is a public school setting and all children are required to have a fruit, a vegetable and a healthy snack from home, along with a milk. If they have potatoes, the child will also need bread to go along with it. Lunchables, chips, fruit snacks, and peanut butter are not considered to be a healthy snacks. Is this going too far in your opinion?

    I remember having spring milk at school and it had a strange taste and they made me drank it and it made me sick. I can't stand drinking milk even today

    I guess I should have said that the Oreos were here snack and not the whole meal.

    so the answer is to ban all home brought lunches and require all children to eat school lunches?
