Ban the Bag: Should Kids Be Forbidden From Bringing Lunch to School?

 It's not reasonable, to expect each and every school lunch program to be capable of accommodating all kids on certain types of diets, such as what is required for allergies and food intolerances. But this is especially true for kids with epilepsy on ketogenic diets, since almost all school systems have bought in to the low fat mantra. Maybe someday, but not right now, not when the government is making more cuts to domestic spending.

 But there is also the matter of how schools are only viewing food from a nutritional perspective, and how entrenched they are in the low fat ideology. Banning cupcakes and birthday cake is ridiculous enough, and I frown on how food is being viewed as a morality issue, and how dare anyone eat for pleasure. No wonder more people are homeschooling these days.

And even if they managed to accommodate allergies, it isn't as if school lunches are *healthy*. It's the cheapest, mass-produced food the government can buy, and any nutrients it had in the first place have likely long since been leached out.
