The Chicken Nugget Bill: Parents Taking Back the School Lunch

As Nanny Bloomberg dictates the diet of adults in the rough and tumble sissy town of New York City, the citizens of North Carolina are taking back the school lunch.

The Chicken Nugget Bill just passed the North Carolina state House and is expected to fly through the state’s Senate chamber.  The Bill will give parents the right to pack any damn thing they want for their kids’ school lunches.  Sad really, that it takes legislation to give parents the rights that are by rights their own.

The story of a four-year-old given school cafeteria chicken nuggets instead of her homemade turkey sandwich brought national attention earlier this year to a law that let nutrition guidelines undermine parents’ preferences.

“The contents of children’s lunch boxes should be decided by their parents and guardians, not by government bureaucrats,” Republican state Sen. Phil Berger said in a written statement. “While nutrition is very important, we need to make sure our child care providers focus on preparing children for school rather than on inspecting lunches.”

The bill also prohibits state agencies from inspecting homemade lunches, thereby preventing the state from penalizing child care facilities for parents’ choices.   Daily Caller

  1. I wish we never needed laws like this.
    It’s a sad commentary on our society that we need to constrain a government from this sort of control…they shouldn’t have ever been allowed to think they had this sort of power.

    How refreshing to see a law that constrains people in positions of authority and not everyday citizens and their children.
