CHICKASHA, Okla. – Lunch meat, a couple of crackers, a slice of cheese and two pieces of cauliflower qualified as lunch in Chickasha Public Schools Monday.
Chickasha lunchStudent Kaytlin Shelton took a photo of the skimpy lunch and showed it to her parents.
“It makes me want to take that and take it to the Superintendent and tell him to eat it for lunch,” the girl tells Fox 25.
“I can go pay a dollar for a Lunchable and get more food in it,” her father, Vince Holton, says.
Shelton is pregnant and eating for two, complicating the problem.
Chickasha superintendent David Cash agrees the skimpy lunches need to be addressed.
“You’ve got in some cases little kids that they’re only two meals are breakfast and lunch at school and they’re getting you know a grand total of 1100 calories. That’s not enough,” Cash says.
The new lunch complies with lunch regulations championed by First Lady Michelle Obama and implemented by the USDA.
