Some Chicago schools have banned lunches from home (unless a medical excuse is given). Reasoning: school lunches are healthier.
What do you think of this decision?
* Reasonable school response to some children's poor lunch choices
* Blatant violation of parent's rights
* Good way to ensure income for companies providing lunch services
I'm admitting that if I had shackles, they would be raised. The quality of many school lunches is way inferior to those I or the children would pack. In spite of the fact we home schooled, the kids occasionally attended classes and workshops and could eat at the school. I believe each may have tried once. When lunches are lean proteins, whole grain, fresh fruits and vegetables and healthy fats and devoid of sugars, I might reconsider my position.
