North Carolina officials have said there was a misunderstanding when a preschoolers homemade lunch was sent home for not meeting certain nutritional requirements, but now a second mother from the same school has come forward exclusively to The Blaze to say the same thing happened to her daughter.
Diane Zambrano says her 4-year-old daughter, Jazlyn, is in the same West Hoke Elementary School class as the little girl whose lunch gained national attention earlier this week. When Zambrano picked Jazlyn up from school late last month, she was told by Jazlyns teacher that the lunch she had packed that day did not meet the necessary guidelines and that Jazlyn had been sent to the cafeteria.
The lunch Zambrano packed for her daughter? A cheese and salami sandwich on a wheat bun with apple juice. The lunch she got in the cafeteria? Chicken nuggets, a sweet potato, bread and milk.
She never eats breakfast or lunch at the school, Zambrano said of her daughter during an interview with The Blaze. We always wake up early and make her lunch.

A single Soylent Pink nugget contains 50% of the RDA of Soma for a 4 year old child.
“Chicken nuggets, a sweet potato, bread and milk.”
Sure as heck isn’t a balanced lunch, more like carb overloading!
The real reason for the food police is that federal money is given on the basis of hot lunches served in the public school—not nutritious bag lunches sent from home.
Yes it is. That lunch violates what my grand-daughter’s pediatrician told her to eat.
Here’s the approved school food processors for NC:
Here’s 4 pages of chicken nuggets from one of the approved processors - these are for K-12.
(I do find it ‘funny’ that Nanny on one hand is trying to take away choice at fast food joints for the common people while holding a chicken nugget in the other hand ready to ram it down a kids throat at Nanny-school)
That’s what I’m trying to figure out. The memo that came from the school referred to it as a review from ECER-S to maintain their NC Star rated license. I think ECER stands for Early Childhood Environmental Rating. (Pre-K age group) The memo goes on to say since EACH child didn’t meet the USDA requirement of:
2 servings of fruit/vegetables
2 servings of grains/breads
2 servings of meats/meat alternatives
they did not get their credit. So follow the money associated with gettin this credit. Who in the heck expects each parent to send all this in a lunch for a preschooler?
(LOL, the phone number and fax number for that school is shown in the memo at the link)
What scares me is when I tell people these stories and they say...”why would they take her lunch? It sounds nutritious to me”! That’s not the point!
So the next time the food nazis interfere and the kid goes into anaphlatic shock due to a food allergy (because mom obviously has her head up her pumpkin or something while packing what she deems nutritious and affordable) who will defend this? Have the food nazis even thought about that?
These government meals will be dumped in garbage cans because the kids don’t eat them. And nothing will force them to eat these meals.
That’s a great step two.
“[Mother fixed] A cheese and salami sandwich on a wheat bun with apple juice. The lunch she got in the cafeteria? Chicken nuggets, a sweet potato, bread and milk.”
Oh yeah, that school lunch sounds WAY better (barf!)
BTW, those school people would have to fight me to get the sandwich. I loves me some salami.
And don’t even get me started on mortadella...
My son was allergic to wheat, corn, peanuts and milk. If the USDA or anyone else had presumed to substitute the foods I packed for him without consulting me, he might have gone into anaphylactic shock.
Thank God we were able to send him to a private school, or he might have been drugged with Ritalin in the gubmint schools before we could have his food allergies diagnosed -- the symptoms were similar: very overactive, itchy, couldn't sit still, rubbing eyes and ears constantly, irritable and excitable. Thank God another parent convinced me to have him tested for food allergies.
He got allergy shots for years as a kid, but his intellect is doing fine (finishing a doctoral dissertation this month). Yet even the private school was exasperated with his behavior before the diagnosis and treatment. After his diet was adjusted, he did great throughout school and work.
especially with processed chicken. Do they get sauce to dip it in??
They were made at a union plant and therefore the salt, preservatives and oils do not cause ill effects.
I think, in my more paranoid moments, that they are pushing us to become violent so they can then accuse us of the very thing.
So, lessee . . . . . . the government has invaded our bathrooms and told us how much water we can use per flush. And, yet, with a drought, reservoirs are STILL going dry.
They invaded our living rooms to tell us what kind of light bulbs we can use. And, Mr. and Mrs. America are discovering that the CFLs are more dangerous and toxic than ANY incandescent.
Now, as part of the Obama's totalitarian regime, government food police are confiscating the lunches purchased and prepared by parents because the children don't want or won't eat the "nutritious slop" prepared by union school cafeteria workers (that Moochelle wouldn't let her own kids eat!).
Do we see a problem, hre??
