Does she have a point?
When it comes to my child’s school lunches, I try to pack a well-balanced lunch from home at least four days a week. I give my children the option to buy a hot meal from school on Thursdays or Fridays, depending on what is on the lunch menu that week. I wouldn’t want them to buy lunch everyday as most of the menu consists of fast food options from outside vendors (like Jersey Mike’s and Panda Express for instance), but I don’t want ban them from eating it altogether. There’s only so much variety I can come up with at home and once in awhile a nice hot lunch is a better idea than a sandwich consisting of cold cuts or last night’s dinner leftovers that is going to end up being lukewarm no matter what.
Yet, many schools are trying to control what their students are eating at school with ‘healthy lunch’ rules that both parents and students must abide by. And as much as it is a good idea, one mother from Virginia thinks it might give her children an unhealthy relationship with food later in life and that’s why she wants to stop it.
