Tyranny Alert! Food Police Strike Again at NC School

Posted by Brian
The federal government is sending USDA officials to inspect for healthy meals being provided by the schools.  But it doesn't stop there. Even lunches packed by parents and brought from home are being inspected to meet the USDA guidelines.  The key word is "guidelines".  Since when is a guideline MANDATORY!
If, as First Lady, she wants to promote healthy eating, I'm all for it. But mandating what parents pack their children for lunch?! This is fascistic. And having Michelle Obama telling us how we are to feed our kids is crap anyway.  It's no secret that she goes out and hits the 1,700 calorie a meal burger and rib joints.  Hey, more power to her if she wants to splurge. And, it's none of my business.  Likewise, it's none of her, or any other bureaucrats', business what I pack my kids lunch box with. This creeping incrementalism by the government has got to be stopped!

EXCLUSIVE: 2ND N.C. MOTHER SAYS DAUGHTER’S SCHOOL LUNCH REPLACED FOR NOT BEING HEALTHY ENOUGH

North Carolina officials have said there was a misunderstanding when a preschooler’s homemade lunch was sent home for not meeting certain nutritional requirements, but now a second mother from the same school has come forward exclusively to The Blaze to say the same thing happened to her daughter.
Diane Zambrano says her 4-year-old daughter, Jazlyn, is in the same West Hoke Elementary School class as the little girl whose lunch gained national attention earlier this week. When Zambrano picked Jazlyn up from school late last month, she was told by Jazlyn’s teacher that the lunch she had packed that day did not meet the necessary guidelines and that Jazlyn had been sent to the cafeteria.
