Mom Fined For Unbalanced Lunch


A mother in California was fined $10 by the school because her kids had an unbalanced lunch. The students at the school should have a balanced meal containing vegetables, meats, fruits, grains, and milk. The kids were missing grains and were given ritz crackers and the mother of the students was fined 5$ for each missing item for each of her kids.


Is this too far? Should schools have the authority to dictate exactly what a students diet should be, or is this a cheap way for the school to make money. Think about it students forget these items a lot, and if they are charged 5$ each item each time, then they will add up. Not to mention the replacement item that they are given does not justify the cost.


On the other side better diets leads to more active and smarter kids, but what gives schools the authority?
