AURORA, Co. (WISH) — When one mom in Colorado ran out of fruits and vegetables, she put Oreo cookies in her child’s lunch.
Apparently, Leeza Pearson’s lunch selection for her daughter didn’t sit well with one school in Colorado.
The 4-year-old student returned home that day with the cookies unopened and a strongly worded note, KMGH-TV reports.
The note read:
“Dear Parents, It is very important that all students have a nutritious lunch. This is a public school setting and all children are required to have a fruit, a vegetable, and a healthy snack from home, along with milk. If they have potatoes, the child will also need bread to go along with it. Lunchables, chips, fruit snacks, and peanut butter are not considered to be a healthy snack. This is a very important part of our program and we need everyone’s participation.”
Pearson said her daughter’s lunch also included a sandwich and cheese.
What do you think? Was it appropriate for the school to make this decision?
