Policing School Lunches - Helpful or Harmful?



Is this happening at the school your children attend? Are teachers confiscating
chocolate covered granola bars, gummy bears and chips from your kids’ lunch
box and replacing them with ‘healthier’ options? Likely not, is my guess, if they
go to school in Perth or Huron County.  But I've heard and read stories lately of
this  ‘lunch box policing’ happening in other parts of the province so I thought it
might be worth discussing.
Teachers’ concern about what kids have in their lunch box isn’t a new concept.
That’s because teachers know that what kids eat impacts their focus, learning
and overall well-being. In fact, tips for packing healthy lunches for kids is
probably the number one request we get from teachers and principals
 throughout the school year.

So, if food is so important for helping kids learn, shouldn’t teachers be pulling
out the unhealthy options?
