School Lunch Box Wars

The NY Times Motherlode has a column here describing the many restrictions that schools are placing on home-packed lunches.  Some really seem to be unbelievable to me.

In all of the years I had cafeteria duty at the high school where I taught, I never worried about what kids ate.  I just worried about the kids (almost always girls) who didn’t eat anything.

I have a question for adults who are so determined to control what children put in their mouths:  Have you never heard of eating disorders?

I'm definitely with the parents who want to slip some treats into their children's lunch boxes.
