Schools Impose Bans on Home Packed Lunches, Chocolate Milk, Cupcakes
Chicago’s Little Village Academy public school has banned bringing homemade lunches to school, and unless students have a medical excuse, they must eat the food served in the cafeteria. The school’s principal , Elsa Carmona, said her intention is to protect students from their own unhealthful food choices.

Alabama parents protested a school’s rule that barred students from bringing any drinks from home; East Syracuse, New York schools have outlawed cupcakes and other desserts, and schools around the country have banned chocolate milk and soda vending machines.

As the Tribune points out, discussions over school lunches have spawned a much larger national debate about the role government should play in individual food choices.

“This is such a fundamental infringement on parental responsibility,” said J. Justin Wilson, a senior researcher at the Washington-based Center for Consumer Freedom.

Let's see how long it lasts when all the parents refuse to send the children to school. Talk about loosing money then.

It's a sneaky way of getting more money out of one's pocket.

Since when are "school lunches" worthy?

Give me a break!

This has to be illeagal.
