The juice and the chips would have issues passing here. They want the kids drinking water and or low fat milk.

Wow!

They won't let them have 100% fruit juice?

I think the serving on protein should be larger than the carb/grain serving.

It is good that the school(s) check to make sure children are given healthy lunches to drink and are not just given junk foods which are in no way good for the child(ren); but I cannot understand why the school found fault with what this specific child had for lunch. There is nothing wrong with the child having a turkey sandwich, banana, apple juice and chips. The schol really had gaul in taking the child's meal away, purchasing the child something else to eat and sending the mother the bill; the schol should have been fully prepared to cover the cost of the meal, when they were the ones who took the child's food away. I do not blame the mother one bit for being upset and she did the right thing to call the state representative.

Beyond ridiculous. I have an underweight kid who is a very picky eater, and tends to come home with fruit still in his lunchbox uneaten. Juice is one of the only ways to get vitamin C in him (and thank goodness, he likes whole grains so he gets the fiber elsewhere). I am getting tired of the war on juice, which is only a problem in excess or if it's a "juice beverage' rather than actual juice. My younger son's daycare just banned juice. Puh-lease.

Kind of like my boys-- being overweight IS NOT an issue (underweight, maybe).
