Mother fined by our wonderful HHS (a.k.a. the SS) for a Turkey sandwich and child forced to eat (3) greasy government chicken nuggets! (Maybe McDonalds is paying Michelle!)

The department of HHS should be found unconstitutional... !! Note that in the story the child ate (3) chicken nuggets.... What a perfect example of what is WRONG with Progressives blinded by a perverted view of 'social justice' and overwhelmed with a pseudo-elitist attitude of 'Father knows Best'!!

The mother should sue Kathleen Sebelius for physical harm to her child - making her eat those greasy government nuggets!

What is wrong with this --->
turkey sandwich and banana


http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/02/14/preschoolers-homemade-lu...



A Hoke County preschooler was fed chicken nuggets for lunch because a state worker felt that her homemade lunch did not have enough nutritional value, according to a report by the Carolina Journal.


The West Hoke Elementary School student was in her More at Four classroom when a state agent who was inspecting lunch boxes decided that her packed lunch — which consisted of a turkey and cheese sandwich, a banana, apple juice and potato chips — “did not meet U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines,” the Journal reports.


The decision was made under consideration of a regulation put in place by the the Division of Child Development and Early Education at the Department of Health and Human Services, which requires all lunches served in pre-kindergarten programs to meet USDA guidelines.


“When home-packed lunches do not include all of the required items, child care providers must supplement them with the missing ones,” the Journal reports.


The student’s mother told the Journal she received a note from the school about the incident and was charged $1.25 for the cafeteria tray, from which her daughter only ate three chicken nuggets.


The note explained how students who did not bring “healthy lunches” would be offered the missing portions and that parents could be charged for the cost of the cafeteria food, the Journal reports.


The mother, who was not identified in the report, expressed concern about school officials telling her daughter that she wasn’t “packing her lunch box properly.”

    From the HHS.gov website... which references the federal guidelines for school lunches in their MANDATE created by 2006-2007,,,, It is the Federal guideline published by the USDA that moochelle changed requiring BILLIONS in new federal funding... that ultimately lead to school districts hiring lunch police to make sure they were in complaince with federal regulations because they don't want to lose precious federal dollars!!

    Analyzing the Early Stages of Local Wellness Policies
    The mandate required local educational agencies, usually school districts that participate in federally-funded school meal programs, to have wellness policies in place by the beginning of the 2006-2007 school year. It is still much too early to draw conclusions about the effectiveness of the law in spurring the adoption of scientifically sound and effective policies or, more importantly, in leading to the actual establishment of health promoting school environments. A number of data collection efforts and research studies are under way, but it will be some time before they are completed and published. In the meantime, I will share with you the limited information we do have about the adoption of school wellness policies.

    Two national non-profit organizations -- Action for Healthy Kids (AFHK) and the School Nutrition Association (SNA) -- are dedicated to protecting and promoting the health of the nation’s youth. These organizations have conducted analyses of wellness policy adoption during this school year. AFHK analyzed wellness policy adoption and content in 112 urban, suburban, and rural school districts, and SNA looked at the 100 largest school districts in the Nation. From these two analyses, it appears that the overwhelming majority of school districts have indeed adopted wellness policies as the law requires and that the policies they have adopted do include most but not all of the components required by the law. That is they address: 1) goals for nutrition education, physical activity, and other wellness activities; 2) nutrition guidelines for all foods and beverages outside of school meals; 3) guidelines for school meals that are no less restrictive than federal requirements; 4) a plan for measuring implementation of local wellness policy, including designation of a coordinator; and, 5) involvement from parents, students, community members, and others. The law does not specify what the policies need to say, only that they need to address these issues.

    Look - you wanted the mandate - HERE IT IS... read.... Of course the lunch police were state workers... of course the state has a program... but you can't negate the reason WHY states do this - It is because of stupid federal mandates... and they are 'at risk' of losing federal lunch dollars if they do not comply with the USDA guidelines that Michelle obama along with the USDA have just 'manipulated' this year at a PRICE TAG of BILLIONS.

    I consider sending the mother a bill for $1.25 for the lunch a 'fine' for noncompliance .....

    so they now say the lunch police pressured the girl - lol

    But the subhead was poorly worded. It made it look like someone had personally intervened to force the child to eat the chicken nuggets instead of her sandwich. That’s not what Burrows had reported. In retrospect, a better choice of word would have been “pressured,” as that accurately reflects what the girl (and other children in the class, it seems) experienced. Their teacher brings them food from the cafeteria even though their parents sent lunches. What is a 4-year-old supposed to think? That the cafeteria food is just a suggestion?

    Why do you lie?

    "The identity of the person who made the original determination that the lunch was deficient, for example, came under question. One source was now saying the person worked for the federal Department of Agriculture. Another said the person worked for the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Center at UNC-Chapel Hill, an organization that had previously acted as a contractor for the state in overseeing More at Four programs such as the one at West Hoke Elementary. For its part, the Department of Health and Human Services issued a carefully worded statement denying that any of its employees or contractors had ever gone through or questioned any child about food items brought from home. Yet another source, a federal official, said that only school personnel were involved in the incident, a claim school officials denied."
