Today I was checking my son's backpack and came across a note from the school that we owe $ for daily fruit at school. I assumed this was fruit the government says kids have to eat for proper nutrition at lunch. Now I'm all for our children eating fruit. I'm all for healthy lunch. What I'm not for is the government telling me that my home made/packed lunch is not balanced and adding fruit and handing me the bill.
Each day I get up early and make a nutritious whole foods lunch. It always included a veggie and/or salad, and a few days a week, a piece of fruit. Milk is drank at home .. whole fat milk .. not the bluish water they call milk at school that's often soured and/or served warm .. or loaded with chocolate and sugar/high fructose corn syrup. Nathan has to limit his fruit due to medical reasons. Most of his colon was removed after it ruptured at birth. If too much fruit is eaten, he has loose bowels. Eating five extra pieces of fruit a week .. well lets just say that might be why his teacher is wondering why he needs to use the bathroom more often.
You can be sure I have a call in to the school to object and to give them a piece of my mind. Believe it or not, I still have plenty of mind left ;)
