Lunch Mandate - School Says No Bag Lunch

The socialists have done such a great job with school lunches that at some schools, they're banning kids from bringing in their own lunches - get this - for nutritional reasons!

“Who thinks the lunch is not good enough?” the Chicago Tribune recently observed seventh-grader Fernando Dominguez shouting to his lunch mates in Spanish and English at Little Village Academy. It‘s a public school on Chicago’s West Side.

As numerous hands reached for the ceiling, Dominguez led a chant: “We should bring our own lunch! We should bring our own lunch! We should bring our own lunch!”

At the school, students are only allowed to bring their own lunch if they have a medical excuse. Why? You guessed it: the school wants to protect children from food that’s unhealthy.

Are the Chicago school lunches better than those in Greater Boston?

State education officials acknowledged yesterday that the out-of-date food problem extends beyond Boston, with old food discovered in school cafeterias throughout Massachusetts... In one instance, pouches of tuna fish were delivered from one warehouse nearly two years after their expiration date.

The nanny-staters love building their business, no matter how much it hurts the children.
