A school in Richmond, Virginia is following federal government instructions by telling parents that they need to have a doctor’s note in order for their children to be allowed to bring packed lunches to school, another example of how the nanny state is encroaching via the public education system.

A letter featured on the website Momdot.com instructs parents that packed lunches must be accompanied with a physician’s note.

The letter also includes a handwritten note from a teacher which reads, “Ms Brooks, Please do not send a lunch to school unless a doctor’s note is sent in connection with this letter.” The identity of the school remains unknown, but it is situated in Richmond, Virginia.

The Federal Programs Preschool initiative is funded primarily by the Head Start Program, a Department of Health and Human Services scheme that provides education and nutritional support for children from low income families. Under Federal Programs Preschool, children are provided with breakfast, lunch and a snack.

The program they signed up for provides the food. IF they don't like it don't sign up for it. If they made all students in all public schools eat their food, too fucking bad, that's what you get when you refuse to take care of your own children. Don't sponge off the rest of us and instead pay for private school. Not one person I know of is forced to send their kids to public school. You have a choice, a plan under the ACA or a private plan, Pick one and yes you have a right to be pissed your forced to buy something. You're forced to educate your kids, but you don't have to pay for it. I don't give a crap but don't complain about taking the freebee of education

This appears to be a Virginia state subsidized program. One comment on this page http://skeptics.stackexchange.com/questi...-to-school stated
Quote: "Out of curiosity, I contacted Catherine Digilio Grimes, Director, Office of School Nutrition Programs, Virginia Department of Education and Michael Welch, Director, Division of WIC & Community Nutrition Services, Virginia Department of Health. Director Welch also inquired with his USDA contact. They said there are no federal or state (that is VA) policies, guidelines or regulations that would prevent a lunch from home. This specific preschool center "may have decided to restrict lunches from home because they can’t get reimbursed"."

Reasons for the restriction include:
Quote: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.

WOW, that's just grand.

100+ years of parents sending kids to school with a bagged lunch, and now we need an over-reaching federal nanny to tell us how to do things?!?!?!

Subsidized or not, these are excuses, not reasons to justify government control.

It's the sheep willing to accept this BS that have gotten us here.

Yeah, this.

If I want my kid to eat three bags of chips, then that's my business, not the school's. What the heck.

I think that if I talked to my family doctor I could get a note saying that they HAVE to bring a bag lunch because the school lunches taste like crap and the children are on a NO MANURE diet.....
You want to take my guns away ???? SCREW YOU ............

Don't send your kids to a government school, problem solved.

If we're going to say that you need to work to get welfare or have a drug test to get welfare then it's okay to force kids to buy school lunches. You can't have a double standard. Want in god we trust on our cash, don't complain about when they change it to in Allah we trust.

Yep, none of this shit is the schools fucking business at all. If there is reason to believe that a child is being malnourished out of some form of malevolence they are more than welcome to call CPS or the police as any concerned citizen might. More and more schools are extending their reach off school property in egregious ways. I think it's just a way to condition independent thought out of the next generation of kids. Like the girl who picked her friend up from the party, they want the next generation of Americans to "solve" problems by looking to government first rather than within' themselves. That's the goal, for the government to control the sheep cradle to grave so they have an endless supply of obedient, thoughtless, tax paying zombies. They almost want to continuously harvest us for the product of our labor it almost reminds me of the plot of the Matrix.

The food allergy thing is a major annoyance to me. What the fuck is causing this? When I went to school there was nobody of the 1,500 of us in the high school who would die if they sniffed a peanut butter sandwich. Further what is with this movement whereby we put the needs of the minority ahead of the needs of the majority. If your kid will die from a PB&J then fine, let them eat in the nurse's office, but no instead we have to punish everyone else. Get on an airplane and they just give you nothing rather than substitute their micro sized bag of peanuts. These companies and institutions have just leveraged this stuff as a scam to save money and reduce services rather than actual concern for the people. Don't even get me started on the idea of making physical gender intact trans kids have to use the facilities of the legit opposite gender subjecting everyone else to the progressive agenda so one person can feel better about them-self rather than use the staff bathroom or whatever. I digress...

I would bet a dollar to a doughnut that the private entity that run's the schools privatized and monopolized cafeteria entity are behind this banning of home packed lunches more than anything else. They know they have a captive market in the school and they just want to jerk the parents by forcing their kids to eat their sub-par food. You damn well know the advocate for the privatized cafeteria is probably the cousin of the school super's cousin Earl is probably being supplied with endless kickbacks in exchange for subjecting families to their blatant bullshit.

The more this kind of shit happens the more I'm thinking my wife and I better job homeschooling kids when we finally decide to have them to stop them from being zombified. It's pathetic how kids today can go through the entire system and somehow not manage to learn to read.

If you wonder why some kids leave school without knowing how to read.. Some kids are just stupid and lazy. Most people are mediocre, few are "special".

The School Revolution: A New Answer for Our Broken Education System

Quote:The following content was provided by the publisher.
Twelve-term Texas Congressman, Presidential candidate, and #1 "New York Times" bestselling author Ron Paul returns with a highly provocative treatise about how we need to fundamentally change the way we think about America's broken education system in order to fix it.
Whether or not you have children, you know that education is vital to the prosperity and future of our society. Yet our current system simply doesn't work. Parents feel increasingly powerless, and nearly half of Americans give our schools a grade of "C." Now, in his new book, Ron Paul attacks the problem head-on and provides a focused solution that centers on strong support for home schooling and the application of free market principles to the American education system. Examining the history of education in this country, Dr. Paul identifies where we've gone wrong, what we can do about it, and how we can change the way we think about education in order to provide a brighter future for Americans.
