Ok so our post now has this new health initiative. I get it to an extent but no more pizza parties by the PTO or anything like that.
Now we are able to go in & eat lunch w/our kids. My DH had off the today so we went & surprised our DD at school & took Subway w/us & sat at the tables provided for those eating lunch w/their kids. Well one of the volunteer lunch mom's through a fit bc we brought in junk food (subway). The principal ended up sending home a letter stating parents should refrain from bringing in pizza, subway, BK, McDs, Taco Bell, etc.
Look I get trying to promote healthy eating, though I think they are going a bit extreme with it.
I also do not believe they should be able to tell me what I can & can not bring when I buy it w/my money. It is a special thing for my child, doesn't happen often. I don't care if I bring in BK or McD's, it is my choice. Not to mention I personally think BK (I hate McDs) is probably healthier than the crap that they serve for lunches!
If they want to do a big health thing & get kids to eat healthier maybe they should look into what the hell they are serving for lunch!
I don't find it appropriate to tell me what I can & can't bring my daughter to eat. What is next, pick through the lunchboxes?
Sorry if that didn't make sense, I just needed to vent!
