Students Forced to Eat School Lunch to Supplement Home Made Lunch
Civitas Institute ^ | 2/14/12 | Matt Willoughby

Posted on 02/14/2012 10:42:35 AM PST by cavdad

A mother in Hoke County complains her daughter was forced to eat a school lunch because a government inspector determined her home-made lunch did not meet nutrition requirements. In fact, all of the students in the NC Pre-K program classroom at West Hoke Elementary School in Raeford had to accept a school lunch in addition to their lunches brought from home.

Worse than that. To conclude that lunches are sub par, they have to be searching the lunches of students. Authority?

Have the kids eat off campus.

I have four chilren and I made a practice of having lunch with them in elementary school. The truth is kids pitch the healthy stuff on their tray in the garbage and just eat dessert. Getting children to eat what’s good for them at home is a struggle-when they’re at school, it’s a lost cause. Go to a school cafeteria and look in the garbage cans-it’s enlightening.

I remember a grade school teacher sent me back to my desk to finish a really distasteful school “lunch” I didn’t want it, it was gross to me, and finally she gave up and spend a good part of the afternoon ridiculing me in front of classmates.

Next day Mom was waiting outside the room when teacher reported for duty. Needless to say, Mom won.

This certainly epitomizes the fundamental issues before us. There is no way that those who created America would ever have tolerated this. There is no way that this could ever be acceptable to those who intend to preserve the values that made America possible; that made her people succeed as no other in human history--when that was still the case.

America was Grounded On Experience & Reason; a people who had built local communities from the ground up, literally from scratch. They understood that what works best in every area of human social concern, is that which maximizes personal, individual responsibility. Parents, not the State, not a distant bureaucracy; not busy bodies with political connections in far off places; the parents, were responsible for their children's care & well being; their food, shelter & raiment.

This is not only insulting to the people in this school district. It is teaching a terrible--terribly unamerican--lesson to these children. But, then, perhaps that is actually the intent. We are no longer on the same page as to what fundamental principles we support.

Ah yes... Those were the days... When parents actually had a say in what was happening to their kids at school.

I had a progressive once tell me, flat out, that our kids did not belong to us, and it was the state’s responsibility to raise them.

The mask is off, folks...

I've come to the conclusion that this is all about getting children conditioned at a young age to accept, even expect government control over their diet (along with every other facet of their life). So in another decade, when the government decides it can regulate your diet and ban fast food and junk food in the name of national healthcare, there will be little to no resistance.

There is a school district that does not allow lunch to be brought from home, to force the kids to eat the school lunches.

I can’t find it right now, but it was covered here on FR.

What if the girl had food allergies? Also the inspector had no idea if at dinner time mom piled the veggies on the child’s plate and the child ate every last bite.

Also the inspector seems woefully ignorant of nutrition. Since when are chicken nuggets regarded as more healthful than turkey and cheese?

The inspection of school lunch systems should consist of making sure the food is prepared in a sanitary manner, that the correct proportions are being served and that there are no obvious financial sheninigans. Policing what student’s eat is way beyond the scope of the job. The only policing that should occur is to take note of what foods from the school lunch end up in the garbage most often.

My daughter is grown now with kids of her own.
But when she was in 2nd grade, being a rambunctious child, we were called in to her elementary school for a ‘talk’ with a school counselor about her behavior.
He suggested that our child be put on some ‘medication’ to facilitate her education.
I threatened to throw the bastard out the window.
We never heard from them again.
She graduated HS with honors.........

Twenty years ago when my children were in school, I would have lunch with them. The amount of food that was thrown away was staggering then, and I am not surprised that it hasn’t changed. Most kids eat what they want and so does Michelle. I don’t understand how Michelle thinks its okay for her to dine here http://www.examiner.com/ny-in-new-york/michelle-obama-dines-out-exquisitely-swordfish-chocolate-sculpture and then try to force kids to eat the way she thinks they should.

Little by little, the government is trying to control us but most of all our children.

My theory on this situation is that the lefty that imposed this was

1) attempting to justify what they’re being paid for
and
2) didn’t think it was “faaaaaair” that this child had loving parents that made a lunch for her and other children don’t.

More than likely it's to boost the numbers of kids eating school lunches in order to get Federal money or something like that.

So when my kid was in the first grade, we had to pack a snack for them to eat before lunch. I was not into snacks in my house. We pretty much waited meal to meal to eat and the meals were plenty to make it through the day. He always had a good breakfast before school and did not need a morning snack before lunch.

So I struggled to pack that snack. Most kids ate chips or cookies...we did not do that in our family and I did not want junk food around. I packed fruit and veggies but my son complained because everyone else was eating “good stuff” and he was stuck with healthy stuff. So I took half a peanut butter and banana (or apples, pears, etc.) sandwich and cut it into bite sized squares for him to have at snack time and that pleased him. Kids approved of his snack. I gave him the other half of his sandwich for lunch.

The dummy teacher yelled at me for giving him “lunch” at snack time and I told her to stop stuffing the children and wait for lunch for them to eat like normal people. :)

I have a cousin who had ADHD (he's adopted, I suspect Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, but that's just an opinion). His (adoptive) parents did everything they could think of.... to no avail. So, they relented and put him on medication and the difference in his grades was immediate. He went from D's and F's to A's and B's, overnight. And, he took up extracurricular activities to boot. Wound up with a Master's Degree and teaches "at risk" students in the inner city. A classic success story. I've watched him work with kids, and some of the stuff he does is nothing short of miraculous.

That's one. Out of what - several dozen? - kids I've known over the years who were medicated. IMHO - again, I'm no doc - the rest just needed to have parents who were interested. And, not afraid to sit on the occasionally. And, most important, educators who were not afraid of a challenge.

Meds - except for a specific few - are the lazy way out. Truly, we will reap what we sow.

The issue is that 9 out of 10 kids are put on meds when they need better parenting or discipline at school. Of course when Meds will eventually get debunked in society the children like your cousin (who really need the meds) will suffer the most.

It may be far fetched, but after hearing a father call into Rush's show today and say that he had to sign an agreement with a preschool regarding the contents of a packed lunch, I see something sinister in this that reminds me of what went on in Hitler's Germany. The government dictates certain terms, that if not followed, could have economic repercussions on a family. Also, you have those who choose not to go along eventually being ridiculed and ostracized by those who obey. Call me crazy, but, with this bunch, who knows....

Have the kids learn off campus, too.

In fact, make sure the kids never set foot on campus in the first place.

Private school ... home school ... either way, the kids are free from the petty tyrants in the government run socialist indoctrination centers.

That’s scary. Our parents tended to give school’s the benefit of the doubt because, for the most part, they did their jobs and did them well. But today, I don’t see how any parent can deal with the crapola coming out of public schools.
