Mother Fined For Kids' Lunches

Updated: Friday, November 22 2013, 02:38 PM EST
MANITOBA, Canada (CBS) -- A mother in Manitoba, Canada was charged a $10 fee after she sent them to daycare with a lunch that included roast beef, potatoes, carrots, an orange and milk.

The reason? The daycare said it didn't include any grains as required by the provincial Early Learning and Child Care department. The daycare gave her kids Ritz crackers and sent home a note saying she would be charged a fine of $5 per child.

The mother told the website 'Weighty Matters' she could have sent her kids with a lunch of microwave Kraft Dinner and a hot dog, a package of fruit twists, a cheestring, and a juice box that would have met the standards, but a homemade meal made with non-processed foods did not.Mother Fined For Kids' Lunches
