Mom Gives Kids Homemade Lunch, School Forces Them to Eat Ritz Crackers

‘A mom who thought she was properly parenting by sending her two young kids to school with a homemade, whole-food lunch was shocked to find a penalty note from school officials informing her that the lunch of roast beef, potatoes, carrots, oranges and milk she provided was “unbalanced” and therefore had to be supplemented with Ritz crackers.

She was also fined $10.’

Really?!

Not homeschooling. My kids are grown. And with 17 years of post high school education, I still occasionally write the wrong word. (I don't have the excuse of using a phone with whatever the thing is that they do.) Even as a physician, I know I am never perfect. Are you?! Just kidding!

I am ashamed to say that this biotech whore Kraft owns my local sports teams: The N.E. Patriots and the N.E. Revolution.

Kraft a biotech whore?

I'm not sure I understand.

Ritz crackers are made by Nabisco, not Kraft.

And Robert Kraft, owner of the Patriots, made his money via the Kraft Group, which according to Wikipedia, is into a lot of things, but food is not one of them. As far as I can tell, Robert's Kraft has nothing to do with Kraft Foods.

However, there are other reasons to be embarrassed. LOL!

Thanks, Allegory.

Still somewhat ashamed though; in addition to being photographed with doubleya he is a board member of Viacom.

A very cold day

in hell, if they think I'd pay that fee, fine or whatever it is they call it.

This would be the perfect example of bringing problems on of their own.
