Mother Fined For “Unhealthy” Lunch She Gave Her Children

 

lunchMANITOBA, CANADA – The Manitoba Child Care Association fined mother Kristen Bartkiw $10 after she failed to include Ritz crackers in her kids’ school lunches. If a child’s lunch is deemed “unbalanced” by the Association, parents are fined. Lunches are required to conform to Canada’s Food Guide.

The mother reportedly sent her children to daycare with lunches that contained leftover roast beef and potatoes, an orange, carrots and milk, but failed to supply “grains”. The school provided the child with supplemental Ritz Crackers and sent home the $10 fine.

Kristen wrote that: ‘had she sent along lunches consisting of, “microwave Kraft Dinner and a hot dog, a package of fruit twists, a Cheestring, and a juice box” those lunches would have sailed right through the MCCA idiocy. But her whole food, homemade lunches? They lacked Ritz Crackers.’

    To clarify, this is a government policy to enforce certain meal requirements. So child care is supposed to enforce this to the parents because its their job.

    So the government is requiring children to have “healthy meals” Not sure how effective or smart this is. I’d rather leave the responsibility to the parents. (At least they are feeding their kid unlike the other story)
