School takes child’s sack lunch saying it was unhealthyFebruary 16th, 2012 at 11:20 am by Kim Vallez under Latest Posts
A North Carolina school is under fire after a state health inspector allegedly made a child eat a school lunch of chicken nuggets instead of her sack lunch because hers didn’t meet state health guidelines.
The girls grandmother says the sack lunch consisted of a turkey and cheese sandwich on white bread, potato chips, a banana and apple juice.
A school spokesperson says while the lunch was healthy, it was missing milk, a key part of what is considered to be a healthy meal. The spokesperson went on to say that the inspector should have simply offered the child milk instead of a replacement meal, but says its part of policy to make sure children have healthy food options.
