AURORA, Colorado– A mom in Aurora is upset after she said a teacher at her daughter’s preschool wouldn’t allow the little girl to finish her lunch.
Leeza Pearson told KUSA that she packed her daughter a sandwich, string cheese and a four-pack of Oreos. The Oreos were still in the child’s lunchbox, along with a note, which, according to KUSA, read:
Dear Parents, it is very important that all students have a nutritious lunch. 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. If they have potatoes, the child will also need bread to go along with it. Lunchables, chips, fruit snacks, and peanut butter are not considered to be a healthy snack. This is a very important part of our program and we need everyone’s participation.
The director of Children’s Academy told KUSA that it’s not school policy to tell parents what their children can or can’t eat. They are looking into it.
