Well you were tired of cooking anyway
Put yourself in the shoes of a mother in Hoke County North Carolina who packed a wholesome lunch for her 4 year old only to have a Government Inspector take Mom’s lunch away, give the confused child chicken nuggets and then send a bill home to Mom. And what was in the lunch? A turkey sandwich, fruit, juice, and a few chips.
What is the underlying message for the child here? “Mommy doesn’t know how to take care of you!” And what is the underlying message to Mom? “You are too stupid to pack a lunch for your own child. You must comply with our mandate”

The mother says her daughter doesn’t like vegetables and – like most four year olds – will only eat them at home under close supervision. ..
The mother, who lives in Fayetteville, sent a statement to state Rep. G.L. Pridgen (R-Robeson) detailing her complaint. Pridgen says he was shocked to hear it. Pridgen has since learned this is a nationwide practice based on federal guidelines.
The upside? A state representative learned something.
