4-Year-Old Girl Returns Home Sobbing With A Note After Mother Sends Her To School With Oreos

One mom says she tries to feed her daughter a healthy diet, which includes a few treats in moderation. After sending her child to school with Oreo cookies in her lunchbox, she got a stern warning from the school.

Leeza Pearson sent her 4-year-old daughter Natalee to the Children's Academy in Aurora, Colorado with a packed lunch. The lunch box included a sandwich, some string cheese and a couple of Oreo cookies.

When Natalee returned home, the Oreo cookies were still in her lunchbox. She was not allowed to eat them. The lunch box also contained a note.

"Dear Parents, it is very important that all students have a nutritious lunch," the note read. "This is a public school setting and all children are required to have a fruit, a vegetable and a healthy snack from home, along with a milk. If they have potatoes, the child will also need bread to go along with it. Lunchables, chips, fruit snacks, and peanut butter are not considered to be a healthy snack. This is a very important part of our program and we need everyone's participation."

Pearson was surprised by the school's reaction. Her daughter is a healthy weight and eats a balanced diet; she thinks that her lunch choices for her daughter should be respected.

Pearson felt the school was being hypocritical. She says she's been asked to bring in candy for holiday celebrations, and that the school gives the students jelly beans in the school's after-care program. "They say I can't decide what to feed her but then they sometimes feed her junk food," Pearson said. "Why am I being punished for Oreos when at other times I am asked to bring candy?"

Staff at this school do not sound like they even know what a healthy, balanced lunch is, considering the note says kids who bring potatoes must bring bread. Are they carbo-loading kindergarteners for a marathon?
