Here is the issue: A school bureaucrat unilaterally decided that a child's lunch didn't meet his/her personal nutritional standards and imposed a cost on the parents. The bureaucrat imposed his judgment over the parents' judgment, and then commanded that they pay for it. The amount involved is not very large, but the principle is huge. What if the school didn't like the kid's lunchbox (all those nasty corporate characters and logos) or notebook (is the notebook manufacturer unionized? Green? Do they give to the right causes?)? Can they demand that the parents purchase a school-approved lunchbox with a PBS character on it instead of a corporate one (My daughter will go berserk if they try to replace Scooby Doo with Nina Totenberg)? Can a school decide that a child's wardrobe isn't up to school standards and purchase a new one and bill the parents (Just think, Che t-shirts for everyone!)? Where does the school get the authority to decide how I will spend my money?
Cheese- No other animal eats the milk of another species. Think about it- would you snack down on a cow's titty for a direct connection? It's probably not real cheese anyway. The label of cheese slices (and I know because my mother insists on eating them) is 14 things other than milk.
Potato chips - one ounce of potato chips has 10.6 grams of fat.
The apple juice could be real or it could be some kind of juicy crap with HFCS and color added along with a mess of chemicals.
I grew up eating in the cafeteria at school....that shit is in no way healthier than what the mother sent to school with her daughter.
