It was just a matter of time. Not satisfied with vending-machine bans on all “unhealthy” foods, school administrators at one Fresno, California area elementary school are putting parents on notice: send the “wrong” kind of lunch or snacks with your kids, and it will be promptly confiscated.
One fifth-grade teacher at Ewing Elementary School told the Fresno Bee that she and most of her colleagues are 100 percent behind their principal’s “no junk-food” policy. “If I see them on the playground with a flaming hot Cheetos,” she said, “I take them away. I tell them to bring an apple [instead].”
