School lunch drama

February 16, 2012

While we can all agree that Americans have a liking for non-healthy foods such as hamburgers, one preschool went as far as to take a child's lunch away and replace it with their own. 

A 4 year-old brought in a turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips, and apple juice to school one day only to have it taken away and replaced with three chicken nuggets. 

 

 

 

The Division of Child Development and Early Education at the Department of Health and Human services requires all lunches to have one serving of meat, one serving of milk, one serving of grain, and two servings of fruits or vegetables.

So what do you think of this preschool's action? Are they justified or not?

I can agree that is important to teach people from an early age healthy eating habits but this may be a little much.

Let us know what you think!

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
