This is why private schools work. They control everything, and if you don't like it...tough.

Actually cookies made in one's own kitchen with real ingredients that one controls are where it's at.

As far as the private school, when one signs up for private school for their children they are given a handbook that outlines all of the requirements and rules.
If they don't like it they should seek a different school for their children.

Psshhh, I'd love to see you try and make sandwich cookies that taste better than Joe Joe's.

Private school can do what they want. They were doing the kid a favor. If you've eaten lunch with with some of the kids who bring their own lunch, you'd find that Oreos was the healthy part of the meal. I've seen kids eat only chips and Gatorade and throw the rest away.

The note that was sent home to the parents reads as follows:
Quote:
"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."
Mom claims school wouldn't let her daughter eat Oreos at lunch - AOL.com

The school is considered a private preschool but it is also part of the public school district's pre-school program.

I do think it's ridiculous for schools to make these types of decisions regarding lunches.

I think schools should absolutely be able to dictate the kinds of foods students eat (or don't eat) at lunch. They're the ones who have to deal with the fallout because these kids are in a sugar-fueled frenzy then crash a couple hours later. How are they supposed to teach?

Am I the only one sick and tired of these BS "outraged moms" complaining about dumb crap on FB and it going viral? She is enraged because her kid is not allowed to eat a cookie at school? Eat it at home. Why is it so critical to eat it for lunch at school, is her delicate little snowflake going to die if she doesn't eat an Oreo at school? How many kids are dying from starvation in this world?

Why doesn't her "friends" on FB ostracize her for being so dumb?
