Family’s anger over school lunch reveals more widespread issues

Angry parents in Chickasha complain their kids aren’t getting enough to eat at school. The Holton family says the meal the district calls a “Munchable” is ridiculous and family members say it needs to change.

The meal that daughter Kaytlin Shelton took a photo of Monday consists of lunch meat, a couple crackers, a slice of cheese and two pieces of cauliflower. Schools in Chickasha serve it every other week.

Kaytlin says it’s especially problematic for her because the 17-year-old is eating for two. She’s pregnant with a little girl on the way.

“It makes me want to take that and take it to the Superintendent and tell him to eat it for lunch,” she said.

Kaytlin’s father Vince Holton says the $3 meal is not good enough for any student, much less one eight months pregnant.

“I can go pay a dollar for a lunchabe and get more food in it,” he said.

The school district says there are more options on Munchable day such as milk, beans and pears, but Superintendent David Cash agrees there’s a problem. He says it’s thanks to federal regulations to fight childhood obesity, which limit calories per meal based on a student’s age.

“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,” he said.

As for the Munchcable? High school students are supposed to get five options at lunch but students only have to accept three. And state nutritional regulators say because of that the meal passes federal guidelines.

“We have a meat-meat alternate, we have a bread grain, we have vegetable,” said Asst. State Superintendent for Child Nutrition Joanie Hildenbrand, looking at the photo she received from Fox 25, “it’s the student’s choice of what they want to take.”

But even she says the federal regulations for maximum calories, sodium and fat are frustrating. Especially because many students don’t eat all of the options.

“These regulations were put into effect two years ago and were still struggling with them.”

There are no exceptions for students who are pregnant or those who are athletes and burn more calories on a daily basis.

Chickasha administrators say as a result they think kids are going hungry at school.

“I know they are,” Superintendent Cash said, “there is no doubt about that. My own kid comes home and the first thing he does is raid the refrigerator.”

And the Holton family says they just want to make sure their kids get the nutrition and calories they need for their growing family.

“Schools are responsible for children while they’re at school,” Kaytlin’s father Vince said, “they’re responsible for feeding the children.”

The Superintendent says in wake of the complaints the district will re-examine the Munchable as a regular meal option.

    The ONLY food that should be permitted in the White House would be the “approved” school lunches.

    Anyone who lets someone else dictate how they raise their children is not a good parent. They, on the other hand, are a wonderful slave to the State!! Hitler would be proud of them.

    As an American who has been living out of country for five years now I find myself totally bewildered watching the totalitarian creep getting worse by the day.And this creature in the stained house,some how I don’t recall it being elected to any office in gooberment. How any parent would tolerate this cretin imposing it’s will upon them and their children I find absolutely stunning to say the least. I would agree with those folks who are fully informed regarding the nature of gooberment as a tool of oppression as opposed to being the protector and guardian of your “HUMAN RIGHTS”. Looking at what you “THINK” is your gooberment and what it actually is should be enough to have the entire population in revolt. I would bet my life had they been as blatant with their plans when the world war two generation were in their prime,those men would have marched on Washington and hung the lot of the miscreants from lamp post up and down Pennsylvania ave,Does anyone recall the Battle of Athens Tennessee in 1946? I hate to say it and I do consider myself a patriot and was very public and active for decades before leaving my once homeland. God have mercy on you folks because if you don’t take a righteous stand against these two political crime families who you keep electing,Your children and grand children will curse your memory for what you have “ALLOWED” to happen to their future.

    Are parents no longer allowed to pack a lunch for children to take to school? I’m in my 70’s and my mother always pack a wonderful lunch almost always a sandwich, a piece of fruit and (what she always considered a surprise) a box of raisins or a cookie or cupcake. It’s funny but I always thought it was a treat to buy a lunch from the cafeteria which I was allowed to do once a week (for 40 cents) we would have such things as spaghetti and meatballs, meat loaf and gravy& mashed potatoes, etc. all accompanied with salad, fruit and dessert and milk.

    Where are the thick slices of fresh turkey carved off the birds, roast beef and sushi? Kids starved while no monies are sparred building bombs and weaponry. Check out what the studio’s typically have spread out for the “A” list actors and even SAG extra’s. That should be the baseline for school lunches.
