I can understand banning nuts or even candy (not really on the candy,) but the whole lunch?
What about the parents who can't afford to take their kid to the doctor, even though they KNOW that dairy makes their kid sick? What about parents who can make a healthy lunch cheaper than buying a school lunch?
Any school that bans homemade lunches also puts more money in the pockets of the district's food provider, Chartwells-Thompson. The federal government pays the district for each free or reduced-price lunch taken, and the caterer receives a set fee from the district per lunch.
Will this slowly become the new standard? Parents can't even be trusted to feed their children properly?
