Does Anyone Have The Right To Take Your Child’s Lunch?
Check out this story and tell us what you think? Wow!
A Raeford, North Carolina, woman said her preschool daughter was given school-made chicken nuggets after a state employee decided her homemade lunch was not nutritious.
The woman said an agent from the Division of Child Development and Early Education at the state Department of Health and Human Services was inspecting West Hoke Elementary School and determined her daughter’s lunch was not nutritious.
She said the lunch – a turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips and apple juice – was not in compliance with USDA guidelines requiring one serving of meat, one serving of milk, one serving of grain and two servings of fruit or vegetables.
The mother said she was charged $1.25 for the school-supplied meal. Jani Kozlowski of the Division of Child Development said the homemade lunch appears to have met the guidelines and she does not know why the agent had the meal replaced. The mother said she wrote to state Rep. G.L. Pridgen, whose office said the matter is being investigated.
