Feds: No Lunches From Home Without Doctor’s Note, School Lunch Only
Schools are turning into prisons.....WTF things have really changed since in 20 years....
It looks like the days of trading half of your peanut butter and jelly sandwich for half of your best friend’s ham sandwich may soon be over if the federal government has anything to do with it.

A Richmond, Virginia mother received the following note, telling her not to pack a lunch for her pre-school age child.

Dear Parents,

I have received word from Federal Programs Preschool pertaining to lunches from home. Parents are to be informed that students can only bring lunches from home if there is a medical condition requiring a specific diet, along with a physicians note to that regard.

I am sorry for any inconvenience. If you have any questions concerning this matter, please contact Stephanie [redacted] the Health Coordinator for Federal Programs Preschool at [redacted].

We have come such a long way its beautiful, heartwarming, exciting and like a nice breeze on a summer day it just feels so damn good.

Twenty years ago if you stood on the corner of a street and held up a sign that said, "Big Brother is Watching YOU, they Want to Control YOUR LIFE", people would of shook their head and labeled you a loony, ....because that would never ever happen.

HEHE.

This case is another example of government bureaucrats arbitrarily deciding that they are more qualified to make health-related decisions than individuals, or parents of children in this case. Especially under this administration, there has been an increasingly authoritarian and paternalistic mentality on the part of power-thirsty public administrators - a mentality that contradicts one of the core values of the American national ethos: self-determination with minimal government intrusion into individuals' life choices.

That is one scary article and it is lyrically heartbreaking! A first class writer! Cannot parents simply tell those schools to fuck off? And tell the feds to fuck off too? There's nothing in the Constitution giving the federal government the right to tell us what to eat! What is wrong with people these days that they'll even consider obeying unconstitutional legislation that 'mandates' feeding garbage - literally, with USDA cast-offs - to their children? Nobody can legally force parents to comply with this crap.

No one is perfect. A babe before walking will first stumble and fall many times but NEVER gives up until he succeeds.

Always remember, ultimately, to never follow any person's belief. Your relationship with God is between you and God.

If nothing else, remember this: religion = subservience, control and conformity, the same template as EVERY government

"Most believers would kill truth if truth threatened their religion." L. K. Washburn

"This crime called blasphemy was invented by priests for the purpose of defending doctrines not able to take care of themselves." Robert Ingersoll

Re: Feds: No Lunches From Home Without Doctor’s Note, School Lunch Only
Looks like this is referring to programs like Headstart, not real schools

[link to skeptics.stackexchange.com]

Here is reasoning why:

She said this is the norm for subsidized preschools in this area. This policy applies even to their non-subsidized "full fee" children. Private schools tend to be more flexible.

There are a number of reasons for this policy at her school:

One is because they are a publicly subsidized program with mainly low-income families and they want to ensure that the children are receiving healthy meals that meet recognized federal nutritional guidelines. Parent supplied meals are often lacking in nutritional balance. (For example, in one field trip where parents did supply meals, one child's "meal" was 3 different bags of chips.)


Another reason is due to allergies. They have a protocol that they have to follow to prevent children from coming into contact with foods that they have an allergy to, and it's much harder to do this with meals brought from home as they have no way to verify ingredient lists or keep track of every child's meals.


Another is storage and preparation. They have little staff time or space to devote to meal storage and preparation, and keeping track of dozens of home-brought meals would cut into the time available for meal prep.


Finally, there are liability concerns. They have no way to assure the food safety for a home-brought meal, as they don't know how it was prepared or stored prior to arrival. Yet a parent may put blame on the school for improper storage if a meal is spoiled and sickens their child.


This all sounds like a bunch of needless complexity and rules for something as simple as a home-packed bag lunch, but they are an understaffed non-profit on a razor-thin budget, subject to both city and state scrutiny for licensing (and funding). They also have the scrutiny of parents that have a propensity to put blame on the agency for the most trivial of concerns -- which leads to a licensing investigation that takes away valuable staff time.

This is coming I think..I can feel it..

The governments will pass a mandate whereby it will be obligatory for families to hand over children to the state full patria potestad to the government

for the benefit of the child of course..to ensure it is properly educated according to principals that are esteemed to be positive and convenient etc..add the wording you like

visisting right will be considered

Post like this leave me speechless.

I do not know if its trolling or if perhaps they are drunk.

I just can not describe the mindset that would utter such garbage.

First you ask a question.

We, I the readers of the thread you ask, "Do you think its ok for parents to give their kid junk for lunch?"

I do not think there is a Parent that bothers to actually get up in the morning, possibly prepare breakfast and pack a lunch would intentionally pack "Junk".

That makes it seem like you have some notion that there is high percentage of incompetent parents packing brown bags with "JUNK". I guess you think it is like 50-75%, a national epidemic of some sort.

Yes the epidemic of obese children in not snacks, junk food, but a parent preparing lunch and putting it in a bag, consisting of a sandwich, a fruit and maybe chips.

Holy Christ they might of even packed some left over spaghetti and vegetables from the dinner the night before.

Yea your insane if you think parents fixing lunch with a brown bag for their children to eat what they fixed for themselves and the family is JUNK your a crazy bat.

Or maybe its just you hate kids, and think all Parents are incompetent and need to be told what to do. You are so exhausted, stressed in your life.....jebus all these damn crazy Parents sending, preparing food for their children to eat is driving you crazy and it "HAS TO STOP".

Instead of thinking you truly wrote that response with your mind reflecting some twisted sensibility of reality which I would rather believe is just a reflection of you being drunk or trolling or drunk trolling.

Yea you just tried to think of some inane comment because you have so much self loathing you can not constructively contribute to anything in any fashion resembling human compassion or conversation.

I however would rather think your just drunk because you talk "crazy talk" and a "troll" sometimes likes to be funny but you are neither funny or drunk.

Your just bat ass crazy. You mention "child abuse".

Your existence is abusing me. I want reparations. You owe me now, consider your self indebted to me.
