The Lunch Nazis Are Coming! No, They’re Here.

I really wish I was making this up. This is from the Carolina Journal Online:

A preschooler at West Hoke Elementary School ate three chicken nuggets for lunch Jan. 30 because a state employee told her the lunch her mother packed was not nutritious.

The girl’s turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips, and apple juice did not meet U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines, according to the interpretation of the agent who was inspecting all lunch boxes in her More at Four classroom that day.

The Division of Child Development and Early Education at the Department of Health and Human Services requires all lunches served in pre-kindergarten programs — including in-home day care centers — to meet USDA guidelines. That means lunches must consist of one serving of meat, one serving of milk, one serving of grain, and two servings of fruit or vegetables, even if the lunches are brought from home.

When home-packed lunches do not include all of the required items, child care providers must supplement them with the missing ones.

The child was forced to eat processed chicken nuggets – after all, they meet the federal dietary guidelines! – in place of the lunch her mother chose for her. And the parents can be charged for the federalist foods provided to their children without their permission. Does this quote from the article bring you to the realization that you are sending your children to a centrally-planned, totalitarian gulag?

“With a turkey sandwich, that covers your protein, your grain, and if it had cheese on it, that’s the dairy,” said Jani Kozlowski, the fiscal and statutory policy manager for the division. “It sounds like the lunch itself would’ve met all of the standard.” The lunch has to include a fruit or vegetable, but not both, she said.

This is the consequence of a government’s fascist “war” on obesity and its fraudulent health & wellness paradigm.

    What really infuriated me in the original article was this:

    “The girl’s mother – who said she wishes to remain anonymous to protect her daughter from retaliation [emphasis added] – said she received a note from the school stating that students who did not bring a “healthy lunch” would be offered the missing portions, which could result in a fee from the cafeteria, in her case $1.25.

    “I don’t feel that I should pay for a cafeteria lunch when I provide lunch for her from home,” the mother wrote in a complaint to her state representative, Republican G.L. Pridgen of Robeson County.”

    Retaliation? This woman is actually going to LEAVE her child in an environment like that described in this article?


    It appears that his poor child is yet another unfortunate little victim of parental units who are insufficiently aware of or concerned by the abuse their offspring suffer at the hands of criminal agents of the State to bother removing them from the institutions controlled by said agents. I’m hard-pressed to think of a more pernicious form of long-term child abuse than what this little girl suffered – and will continue to suffer if her mother lets things remain the way they are.

    By the way, I notice that this little girl is a four-year-old preschooler, too young even for kindergarten. While I’ve certainly been out of touch with public education trends (and proudly so), I have to ask: since when did parents start sending pre-schoolers (pre-K) to elementary schools rather than daycare centers? If this has become a common trend, it’s doubly criminal that the institutional abuse is starting even earlier than in the past.

    things are really absurd: raw milk is verboten, and small farmers have to deal with onerous regulations…but then stuff like this is OK — a guy in Vegas has chest pains while eating a 6,000 calorie “triple bypass burger” at a restaurant (I swear that I’m not making this up):

    It was always going to be unwise naming a restaurant that glorifies unhealthy food the Heart Attack Grill.

    And on Saturday the inevitable happened when a customer suffered a cardiac arrest in the chain’s Las Vegas branch.

    An onlooker captured video of paramedics wheeling the unidentified man, thought to be in his 40s, out of the fast-food diner.

    He was midway through eating a 6,000-calorie Triple Bypass Burger when he began experiencing chest pains.

    The restaurant chain – founded in 2005 using the catchphrase ‘Taste Worth Dying For!’ – is run by a former nutritionist ‘Doctor’ Jon Basso who, remarkably, used to run a Jenny Craig weight loss diet centre.

    He denied the incident was an elaborate publicity stunt.

    Mr Basso told Fox News: ‘The gentleman could barely talk. He was sweating, suffering.

    ‘I actually felt horrible for him because the tourists were taking photos of him as if it were some type of stunt.

    ‘Even with our own morbid sense of humour, we would never pull a stunt like that.’

    The Heart Attack Grill sells calorie-laden fare with names such as Quadruple Bypass Burgers and Flatline Fries.

    Meals can exceed 8,000 calories. The recommended daily intake is 2,000 calories for women and 2,500 for men.

    The Triple Bypass Burger contains three slabs of meat, 12 rashes of bacon, cheese, red onion, sliced tomato and the Heart Attack Grill’s own ‘unique special sauce’. And that’s before taking into account the accompanying ‘Flatliner Fries’, cooked in pure lard, and a giant soft drink.

    Accentuating the medical theme, waitresses dressed as nurses deliver the artery-clogging food.

    A sign at the entrance to an Arizona restaurant reads: ‘Go away. If you come in this place, it’s going to kill you.’

    But the chain has provoked widespread anger with promotions including offering free food to morbidly obese customers.

    In an exploitative advertising campaign, the restaurant announced that it would pick up the bill for any patron who weighed more than 25-stone.

    Mr Basso hired a 46-stone man, Blair Rivers, to star in a tongue-in-cheek commercial promoting the special offer.

    In the ad, Mr Basso says with a smile: ‘I personally guarantee a stable upward progression of body weight while you’re enjoying great tasting foods.

    ‘Along with a cold beer and cigarette, it’s a diet you can stick to for life.’

    The advertisement then states the side affects from eating Heart Attack Grill food ‘may include sudden weight gain, repeated increase of wardrobe size, back pain, male breast growth, loss of sexual partners, lung cancer, tooth decay and liver sclerosis stroke.

    ‘In some cases mild death may occur.’

    Just thought I’d also provide a link to another viewpoint on this story

    The positive reinforcement of my homeschooling decision seems to be increasingly frequent and emphatic. There seems to be a news story every day now that makes me say, “Glad I never even considered sending my kid to a public school.”
