Well it turns out that there are really food police after all folks listen -- this one a preschooler.
Brought her own school to lends her lunch to school or other she -- -- the fact -- -- -- get a Turkey sandwich a banana.
Apple distance strike -- very much like when I send my kids out but in the morning but apparently the school stepped in they decided -- actually was not nutritious enough.
Because it was missing the all important vegetable even mention -- she also had.
So they took away her food.
-- the state -- -- was in the -- took where food and -- little girl over to the lunch line for which she had to pay a dollar 25 for her lunch.
And they gave her chicken nuggets instead have -- it.
And -- now in this baffling story by Peter Sprague -- is a senior fellow at the family research council Peter.

That it is true.
If we live in a country where -- parent can no longer pack a lunch school out for her own child.
That's not creeping totalitarianism that's raging totalitarianism.
-- I just can't -- it.
And there is no way I mean any massive band cafeterias in the past years now know that -- -- that's coming out of there I'm sorry in most cases it is -- you know either.
Boiled to death arm it was frozen to Begin with -- is -- -- that they put the little girl in a few chicken nuggets apparently she was missing the vegetable.
And they say that that does it -- the the -- of agriculture guidelines.

And unlike you I think that doesn't want she had sounds like a pretty balanced lunch -- I like it sounds very balance is what I'm saying Turkey sandwich banana at.
Applications and chips you know trying to chips for good measure -- actually the worst thing in a while right.
Right and ironically chicken nuggets are not exactly how they read that's true that the food police under normal circumstances so it's a bit -- -- no sense on so many levels.
We've missing that picture that the stuff that makes chicken nuggets it looks like it's an ice cream like a soft ice can dispenser and then -- be -- -- and I just.
