Mother receives letter from school to stop sending packed lunches with student

“You must have a doctor’s note” was the message from a school in Virginia where a mother received a shocking letter asking her to stop sending a packed lunch with her child.

“Zion refuses eats what the school provide, I know this because he’s uber picky but after I received a note from his teacher last month that he hasn’t eat much and perhaps I could pack him a lunch. I did…,” she wrote on her blog as an introduction to the story about the letter.

Linda Brooks didn’t expect the school’s health coordinator to demand a doctor’s note in order to feed her son.

“This is astounding on so many levels. How dare they tell me not to pack a lunch from home but they would force my child to eat? I know my child and I know what he likes to eat. But if he refuses, what is he going to eat then?”

The letter states that: “…students can only bring lunches from home if there is a medical condition meriting a specific diet, along with a physicians note to that regard.”
