So I was not surprised at all by the news story that circulated the web earlier this week...a kindergartner's lunch was confiscated by the school and served chicken nuggets by a social worker. The child in question had a lunch that contained a cheese sandwich, a banana, and a bag of chips. Yes, this is why I really want to home school my children. There are a million reasons why a parent chooses a child's lunch and the school has no business messing with any of them. I tell the children that I spend a lot of money on their food because it is better for them than the orange and purple stuff in the colorful wrappers. I just cannot yet find a helthy alternative that will agree to wrap it up in neon...But, mommy, are we poor? That is all they hear. Yes children...you will need to sell your season passes to Six Flags in order to make you funner lunches. I am so sorry..
I am not at all surprised by the school reaction. I faced this last summer when the whole issue became so important to me. I get the health reasons, however, I was confused. God has led me to enlarging our family, possibly homeschooling and a whole host of other issues...why was this important to Him? Then I noticed the issue...how much is the packed food industry influenced by the eugenic movement? Started to make more sense to me the further I dug...
