Close on the heels of a federally sponsored preschool in Virginia disallowing homemade lunches without a doctor’s note, a mom in Manitoba was given this note and a $10 fine when her children’s preschool felt that the lunch she sent from home required “supplemental” Ritz Crackers.
The lunch that didn’t meet the Canadian Food Guide requirements?
Leftover roast beef, potatoes, and carrots, with an orange for dessert, and a container of milk
Natalie and Logan’s mom, Kristin Bartiw, wrote of her dismay:
[If the lunch contained] “microwave Kraft Dinner and a hot dog, a package of fruit twists, a Cheestring, and a juice box” those lunches would have sailed right through this idiocy. But her whole food, homemade lunches? They lacked Ritz Crackers.
So what say you? Have you come across a more inane school lunch policy? Because I sure haven’t.
