Federal Agents Inspect Your Child's Lunch

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: This is from Raeford, North Carolina. Carolina Journal. I'm gonna read it to you exactly as it printed out here: "A preschooler at West Hoke Elementary School ate three chicken nuggets for lunch Jan. 30 because a state employee told her the lunch her mother packed was not nutritious. The girl’s turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips and apple juice did not meet US Department of Agriculture guidelines, according to the interpretation of the agent who was inspecting all lunch boxes in her More at Four classroom that day."

Again, let me read this to you: "The girl’s turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips and apple juice did not meet US Department of Agriculture guidelines, according to the interpretation of the agent who was inspecting all lunch boxes in her More at Four classroom that day." There are federal agents inspecting lunch boxes? See, I don't have kids. You heard of this? You heard of this, Snerdley? I know you don't have kids that you know of, either. I've not heard of federal agents inspecting lunch boxes. And, furthermore, I've not heard of agents declaring that what's in them is not nutritious enough and throwing them out and substituting three chicken nuggets.

"A preschooler at West Hoke Elementary School ate three chicken nuggets for lunch Jan. 30 because a state employee told her the lunch her mother packed was not nutritious. The girl’s turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips and apple juice did not meet US Department of Agriculture guidelines, according to the interpretation of the agent who was inspecting all lunch boxes in her More at Four classroom that day." Again, let me read this to you again: "The girl’s turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips and apple juice" were thrown out "did not meet US Department of Agriculture guidelines, according to the interpretation of the agent who was inspecting all lunch boxes...

"The Division of Child Development and Early Education at the Department of Health and Human Services requires all lunches served in pre-kindergarten programs -- including in-home day care centers -- to meet USDA guidelines. That means lunches must consist of one serving of meat, one serving of milk, one serving of grain, and two servings of fruit or vegetables, even if the lunches are brought from home. When home-packed lunches do not include all of the required items, child care providers must supplement them with the missing ones. The girl’s mother -- who said she wishes to remain anonymous to protect her daughter from retaliation -- said she received a note from the school stating that students who did not bring a 'healthy lunch' would be offered the missing portions, which could result in a fee from the cafeteria, in her case $1.25.

"'I don't feel that I should pay for a cafeteria lunch when I provide lunch for her from home,' the mother wrote in a complaint to her state representative... The girl’s grandmother, who sometimes helps pack her lunch, told Carolina Journal that she is a petite, picky 4-year-old who eats white whole wheat bread and is not big on vegetables. 'What got me so mad is, number one, don’t tell my kid I’m not packing her lunch box properly,' the girl’s mother [said]. 'I pack her lunch box according to what she eats. It always consists of a fruit. It never consists of a vegetable. She eats vegetables at home because I have to watch her because she doesn’t really care for vegetables.'"

Do you believe this? I do! The food Nazis -- and, by the way, this is Michelle (My Belle)'s program: No Child's Behind Left Alone. Folks, what is going on here? Do you know what frightens me? This has probably going on and has been good guy a lot longer than I know because I don't have children. I wonder: How many people, how many parents are acquiescing to this? "When the girl came home with her lunch untouched, her mother wanted to know what she ate instead. Three chicken nuggets, the girl answered. Everything else on her cafeteria tray went to waste. 'She came home with her whole sandwich I had packed, because she chose to eat the nuggets on the lunch tray, because they put it in front of her,' her mother said. 'You're telling a 4-year-old. "Oh. your lunch isn’t right," and she’s thinking there’s something wrong with her food.'" What is wrong with a turkey sandwich and a banana?

Take a break. What do you mean, I don't care about the children? Don't tell me that! That's BS.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: By the way, at West Hoke Elementary School in Raeford, North Carolina, every student had their lunch box inspected. And I think every student failed in having a nutritious lunch by the agent in charge, which is probably an SEIU union cafeteria worker.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Lucas in Boone, North Carolina.  Welcome to the EIB Network.  Hello.

CALLER:  Greetings from the People's Republic of North Carolina.

RUSH:  Thank you, sir.

CALLER:  About eight months ago my wife and I decided to enroll our son in daycare here in North Carolina, and I got this huge packet of sheets that I had to fill out, and they, you know, field trip permission slip, take your photo permission slip, and one of them was, "By signing this you agree that you'll meet the state's requirements for a preschool lunch," even though I'm packing it.  And it says I have to have six ounces of milk or a milk substitute, four ounces of meat or a meat substitute, three ounces of grain, three ounces of vegetable, three ounces of fruit, and goes on and on and on.  And I did not sign it and I fought about it with them and they pointed me to the state official that I could talk to, and they told me that, "If your son doesn't like milk just pack it anyway and we'll dump it out for you and then you can pack something else."  And I said, "Do you know how much a gallon of milk costs?"  And they said, "Well, that's the rules and you have to follow 'em if you want to be in daycare." So now I've got the government telling me that I'm not smart enough to feed my own child.

RUSH:  Yep.  North Carolina, same state as the kindergarten requirements I just described.

CALLER:  It's unbelievable.

RUSH:  Same state.  And, I'll tell you what, this is all coming from Michelle Obama.  There are agents in preschools, kindergartens in North Carolina examining the preschool students' lunch boxes.  State agents!
