    Personally I would tell the school to kiss my ass and either home school or put them in a private school. I would NEVER put my child in a government school. I don't care if I had to work 3 jobs on top of running my business.

    Something about this "regulation" sounds "off" to me.

    The only regulation I can find for Kentucky is one that regulates what is SOLD in the school outside of the NSLP:

    702 KAR 6:090. Minimum nutritional standards for foods and beverages available on public school campuses during the school day; required nutrition and physical activity reports.

    Note - the header says food "available", but available is later defined as "sold." Don't assume the District understands this regulation or is applying it correctly. Ask to see a copy of the regulation stating that lunch from home must comply.

    Good find!

    Who exactly is telling you that your lunch has to match a certain template? Is it the principal or the lunch director? it's quite possible they're mistaken and don't understand the regulations fully.

    That's exactly what I'm hoping to do. I just hope the pediatrician will sign it. I've already told them what the note needed to say, but they haven't drafted it exactly as I told them. I'm worried that they are not going to be willing to do so, but will cross that bridge if and when we get there I guess.

    That section has not a single mention of food that is brought from home. It is simply what the center is mandated to supply. You could tell them that they can put a package of wrapped crackers out when an inspector comes through. Won't cost them anything because they can re-serve it another day if it's unopened.

    I wish this was an option. I'm a single mom, so somebody has to pay the bills

    I would just toss in a piece of real rock solid hard bread that would never get touched but fulfilled the requirements none the less.

    That's kind of what I was going for with my idea of having one slice of bread in the lunch bag... it would get gross and moldy at some point, I'm sure, but it would still serve the purpose of being a piece of bread brought from home to meet the requirements.

    have you considered going to the school board about this? If it's not stated in the actual regulation, it's not necessary...

    or a more "passive" route would be to print said regulation, and leave it in the child's lunch box. then when it's opened and "inspected" they'll see in print that it doesn't have to be the way they say it does.
