...but gunga is trying to blame Obama....
Did you cal the various folks involved in this yet?
I called and said I was from Salon.com and wondered if there was any truth to that story. He said "no maam, but if you want to comment to call the superintendent."
I just went over to Snopes.com to submit a "rumor new to me", stating the following:
"There is an article being posted all over the net on various blogs regarding Hoke Elementary School in North Carolina. The rumor states that a pre-schoolers lunch of a turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips, and apple juice did not meet USDA standards. The child then was forced to eat three chicken nuggets.
I called the school and was told this wasn't true but to further comment to call the superintendent.
Would appreciate if a source such as yours could look further into this rumor and possibly find the origin. I've been googling around and all I can find is the same story with no variation and no full names associated with it.
Since yesterday the story has grown further and is being reported (no variations) in more blogs including Huffington.
Thank you for your time."

Apparently I am not the only one who thinks this story is not plausible. ...
“determined that no employee of DHHS, nor the Division of Child Development and Early Education (DCDEE) or its contractors, instructed any child to replace or remove any meal items. Furthermore, it is not DHHS’ policy to inspect, go through or question any child about food items brought from home. The facts we have gathered confirm that no DHHS employee or contractor did this.”
So this was a FAKE story???
but now a second mother from the same school has come forward exclusively to The Blaze to say the same thing happened to her daughter.
Diane Zambrano says her 4-year-old daughter, Jazlyn, is in the same West Hoke Elementary School class as the little girl whose lunch gained national attention earlier this week. When Zambrano picked Jazlyn up from school late last month, she was told by Jazlyn’s teacher that the lunch she had packed that day did not meet the necessary guidelines and that Jazlyn had been sent to the cafeteria.
The lunch Zambrano packed for her daughter? A cheese and salami sandwich on a wheat bun with apple juice. The lunch she got in the cafeteria? Chicken nuggets, a sweet potato, bread and milk....
.. the bottom line is that the one kid came home with her packed lunch uneaten, having had three mcnuggets for lunch and everybody on the govt. side seems to be trying to spin the story but nobody is denying the basic outcome.
