School Sends Daughter Home With Partially Eaten Lunch & This Note For The Mother

A mother in Aurora, Colorado, is upset after she found out her 5-year-old daughter’s preschool teacher wouldn’t let her eat Oreos at lunch. “They took it over the top to say the kid can’t eat it. It was in their lunchbox but you can’t eat it today,” Leeza Pearson told KMGH. The teacher said they weren’t nutritious and sent the girl home with a note, which read in part: “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 a milk. … Lunchables, chips, fruit snacks, and peanut butter are not considered to be a healthy snack.” Pearson’s daughter’s lunch also included a ham and cheese sandwich and string-cheese, along with the four-pack of Oreo cookies. “What the school thinks is healthy for her is not what I think is healthy for her. … That’s between me and her and our doctor,” Leeza Pearson told KUSA. The director of the academy says it’s not school policy to tell parents what to feed their children and they’re currently investigating the note. A similar incident took place in Missouri in January.
