A 4-year-old North Carolina girl has her lunch - packed by her mother - taken after a state employee said it didn't meet federal guidelines. The lunch taken: a turkey and cheese sandwich with some fruit and chips. Her replacement: chicken nuggets.
Tom Graham with FOX News Radio affiliate WRDU has more from Raleigh:
The child's packed lunch consisted of a turkey sandwich, a banana, potato chips and apple juice. A state employee inspecting the lunch claimed it didn't meet U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines.
(Grandmother) "Because that state official was in there, the school made her buy a $1.25 lunch."
That's the girl's grandmother, who did not want to give her name. Pre-kindergarten lunches are required to meet USDA standards in North Carolina. The 4-year-old was provided a lunch featuring chicken nuggets, and her mother's packed lunch went untouched.
