Remember the olden days, when a good home made meal of roast beef, potatoes, carrots, oranges and milk would be a healthy lunch for children in school?
Welcome to the new era, when “government” knows best.
A school in Manitoba, Canada “supplemented” a wholesome lunch just like that with Ritz Crackers and fined the parents $10.00 (Canadian).
Yes, I really did say “Ritz Crackers.”
I happen to love Ritz Crackers, but never once have thought of them as a “supplement” to an “unbalanced” meal of homemade roast beef, potatoes, carrots, oranges and milk.
(Make sure to click on the “nutrition info” link at the bottom of the “official” page on Ritz Crackers, so you can see how much your children need them! Saturated Fat and Salt. Yum!)
Here is my question: Are you sure you want to trust these people with your child’s education?
Yep, another case of the state run amuck.
