Chicago school bans some lunches brought from home – Chicago Tribune. The article says it is a common practice in the Chicago area. The principals of each school can choose to ban lunches from home citing the children get better nutrition if they eat the school food. I remember when I was a child, taking your own lunch in a lunchbox was common. School lunches cost a bit of change each week and for families with more than one child, it can really add up! The schools say it is to prevent those kids from eating a coke and a bag of chips for lunch instead of a balanced meal they offer. I feel it is just another way for the system to take away the rights of the parents. I feel the parents need the choice.

My husband and I married in 1970. I am the mother of 2 and grandmother to 5. I am a retired wedding cake decorator. I like watching Netflix on the Wii. I am catching up on all of the old tv shows I missed when they were on prime time! Right now though, I am reading and writing blogs, watching tv, making jewelry and rosaries, selling in my Etsy store and playing solitaire. I am home bound and add in my physical therapy exercises to my daily routine. I will blog about my progress or anything that catches my attention at that moment. See you around and thanks for stopping by!
