Just when you thought the “Nanny State” couldn’t get any bigger…
Are you ready for your child’s sack lunch to come under scrutiny? By a government inspector, that is. And you wonder why the government is bankrupt.
North Carolina deemed that a lunch consisting of a turkey & cheese on wheat sandwich, a banana, apple juice and potato chips did not meet the “nutritional requirements.”
Incidentally, this was exactly the same lunch I packed for a six year old today.
So what was the Inspector’s recommendation?
Why chicken nuggets, of course.
Along with milk and canned fruits and vegetables. Did you know, by the way, that McDonald’s Chicken Nuggets have Silly Putty as one of the ingredients? Can’t imagine anything healthier than that!
According to Federal Government Guidelines- a “healthy” school lunch must consist of milk, two servings of fruit or vegetables, bread or grains and meat. Everything must be uniform in the U.S.S.A. of today…
Want to raise you kid as a Vegan or Vegetarian? Not in this Country. How about Jewish dietary guidelines, where meat and milk cannot be eaten in the same meal? So much for the freedom to raise your children according to your religious tenets.
And what if your kid is a Celiac and can’t eat wheat? Or is lactose intolerant? Prepare to be interrogated!
Keep in mind, the same Federal Government so concerned with the health of your child it recently tried to get pizza classified as a vegetable for school lunches. That’s right. And where does it all end?
