'Food police ' role for schools
Even Jimmy Foreman couldn't agree to this!
Department of Health official s are trying to encourage schools to act as state police and snoop in our kids' lunch boxes!
This nanny state mentality gets worse by the day! Sure, there is a place for education, information, encouragement, and motivation, but the issue of what children bring to school is not one for which policy should be adopted! This moronic idea is a sure-fire way of putting everyon's noses out of joint, a perfect way of causing a parents' revolt, it is sheer nonsense.
We all know that our children should be eating a balanced and nutritional diet, we all know that they require more exercise too, and our schools cannot be faulted for the provision of excellent variety and high quality school meals, (just ask Cllr. Foreman, he'll tell you), but we all know too that there are certain foods and tastes which some children will just not stomach! So what's the point of packing lunch boxes with items which will invariably go to waste?
If your child is allowed to take a packed lunch to school, tell the school to KEEP THEIR NOSE OUT of it!
