An elementary school in the UK has started a crackdown on unhealthy snacks and drinks in Lunchboxes and it’s not going over very well with parents. The school has specifically banned sausage rolls, pork pies, and  pepperoni sticks.

The new policy also states that parents will be called if the prohibited items are found in pupils’ lunchboxes AND children aged three to seven will also be “encouraged” to show their packed lunches to staff before they eat.

Parents are not happy. What are your thoughts? Should school’s have a right to monitor what kids are eating, and ensure they are eating healthy? Or are they over stepping boundaries and it’s up to the parents to decide what to feed their kids?
