The Government and “Balanced” Meals

The lunch-and-grains nazis are not only a nuisance in the US – it seems they have a foothold in Canada as well. A mom sent her child to Manitoba Government’s Early Learning and Child Care with an “unbalanced” meal consisting of meat, vegetables, fruit, and dairy, and that earned her a $10 fine and a stern warning from the jackasses who declare that all children’s lunches should accord to Canada’s standards for nutrition policy. Additionally, the child’s meal was supplemented with the industrial food, Ritz Crackers, in order to supply the child with her shot of sugar grains. Hat tip to the several people who FYI’d me with this story.
