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.
