Want to send your child to school with a lunch you prepared yourself? The federal government now forbids it, unless you get a doctor’s note.
When I was a kid it was assumed your parents would provide you the lunch you liked. Today, every kid is fed by the federal school lunch program. And it appears that this federal program has decided that only it knows what is good for your child.
