Below is an article about a North Carolina mother who was billed for an alternate lunch after a health representative at the school deemed her child's sack lunch from home lacking in nutrition.  And just read what she sent, and what the alternative was!!  A friend of mine posted this on her facebook page and I read it and grew immediately irate for this mother.  Then I saw that another local friend of mine commented that this had happened to her here in Fort Worth, too.   What...?

I felt this was applicable to our blog as childhood obesity is a growing problem in our country, and being in the business of health care, we all know that adult obesity is also a problem, which of course leads to many implications on our health care system.  However, is this government involvement taking it too far? Have any of you had any experience with this?  Thoughts?


  1. this totally burns me up!!! wow! and it reminds me that i am completely blessed, because when we are out of residency, we WILL be able to afford private school, and so many people will not. public school is not the same as when i went, and surely it will not get better in the years to come as my children grow closer to school age. at times the medical journey sucks. but the options it provides at the end make it worthwhile. now if the government could stay out of healthcare... :)

  2. Crazy! Get out and vote for smaller government. We don't need them in our kids lunch boxes.

  3. I don't think this is representative of government today. This employee was overstepping boundaries.
