What if the children, whose packed lunches were forbidden, were suffering from food allergies? What if the oil that the chicken nuggets were cooked in was a no-no for that child? What if they were allergic to nightshade foods like potatoes? Finally, what if the children got sick from the school lunches? Who is responsible for making that boy or girl sick?

No. They should be eradicated. There is no reason for free people to tolerate this. Tell the food nazis to leave. If they don't, hang them.
every lunchbag from home should have a “no trespassing” sign pasted to it.
That’s the way to fight them on this.
Get a lawyer to basically let them be aware that by requiring the child to eat what is required by the school, they are also assuming the complete liability.
When schools start thinking along the lines of liability, they may not be so enthusiastic about providing free lunches.
My kids are grown but I can tell you this, ANYONE who touched my kids lunches would not live to tell about it! Who authorized these “food police” who are they, where did they come from and why are parents letting them get away with this BS.
You're arguing the issue as if the technical merits were relevant. The point is, no bureaucrat, no matter how grandiose, outranks even the most feeble parent, barring cases of actual abuse. They work for us (sorry, I've been doing my best to fire them), not we for them.
Sued in the long run.. but in the short term, I would like to see every single parent march down and take over the school.
Why is it we TOLERATE this kind of garbage? People have become sheep. 20 years ago, teachers would have been dragged out of the school by parents for even suggesting this.
No. We should find out what foods they cannot eat- and force feed them.
I find it interesting that they make people eat a meat and a dairy at the same time.
I am quite sure there are some Jewish folk who would be PISSED about that.
I agree with you totally. People think..oh, that’s just a couple of instances..no big deal. THEN it’s happening everywhere and out of control.
Like the article said..nip in the beginning.
I can just imagine some lard-butted food cop opening a lunch bag, seeing a nice yummy salami on whole wheat sandwich and thinking, "Hmmmm... the kid probably likes chicken nuggets better anyhow, so I'll just..."
Simple answer: yes, to punishing levels, both the institution they work for, to punish the taxpayers for voting idiots in, and also individually, to the point that working off the 80K in college debt will seem like chump change for the next 40 years.
The government can be trusted to feed the children like they educate them about adult porn and fail to teach them to read and write. This little liberal project will knock them off faster.
My child has Oral Allergy Syndrome which makes him allergic to fresh fruits and vegetables. He is also allergic to many of them even in cooked form. And he is allergic to soy. They put soy in everything; check the labels, you will be astonished at what has soy in it. There are many reasons that a child might bring a packed lunch to school and many reasons why it might not fit the government’s dietary guidelines and their idea of a nutritious lunch.
The irony (for lack of a better word) is that there is no scientifically derived formulation of a healthy diet. Yet, despite any lack of scientific evidence of any optimal diet, those food nazis are all too happy to dictate how people eat, all in the name of science.
