The Food Gestapo -- posted by Mom
Did y'all see this? From what I've found this is a true story of a little girl in NC whose mommy packed her lunch with a turkey and cheese sandwich, a banana, apple juice, and chips. A state agent who inspected her lunch decided it didn't meet the federal nutritional guidelines because it was missing a vegetable and milk. The official then charged the family $1.25 for the school cafeteria lunch that was provided for the girl, from which the child ate three chicken nuggets.
The little girl's mother stated that since her daughter doesn't like vegetables, she serves them at home so she can watch her and see that she has, indeed, consumed them. Naturally the mom is livid that her daughter was told her mommy didn't pack her a healthy lunch.
Oh Lord, another bee in my bonnet.
