Colorado Preschool Takes Candy From a Baby

This is not the first time I have heard of this.

Dances With Fat

Grading lunchFour year old Natalee Pearson left for school with a ham and cheese sandwich, string cheese, and a 4-pack of Oreo cookies that her mom packed her for lunch. When she came back home the Oreos hadn’t been touched and she explained to her mom that her teacher wouldn’t allow her to eat them.

The teacher had sent home a note to clarify:

Dear Parents, It is very important that all students have a nutritious lunch.

    I don’t advocate kids eating junk 7 days a week but geesh, it was a few cookies for one lunch, mixed with other food. The schools have taken so much control over children the parents are not getting a say in it anymore with every “school policy” they create. Yet the parents are expected to pay for the school’s interference.

      Yep I totally agree. I can’t drink milk. I was forced to in school and we (me and a teacher) would sit inside every day while they waited for me to drink it. It never happened. Finally my mom told the school I was allergic to milk and can’t drink it. I was finally let out at recess and the teacher could do what they had to do.
