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 couldn't understand the potatoes with bread comment either.
thanks for commenting
I guess I should have said that the Oreos were here snack and not the whole meal.
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
so the answer is to ban all home brought lunches and require all children to eat school lunches?
Please ! You should know better than to say that! I certainly know that's too simplistic an answer to the problem.
I think all of this wonderful passion should be directed to the FDA. Perhaps it will bring about a ban on the junky convenience(processed) foods that fill most of the grocery shelves. It's not the job of schools to inspect our kids' lunch bags.
