School criticizes kid's lunch

Mom says school overstepped bounds for health's sake"Health is my number one issue, especially with my daughter. And nutrition it's an uphill battle some days with my daughter just to eat in general," Lotcher said.

Lotcher never thought it would be a battle with the school, until she said she got a phone call and a lecture over a "doughnut." It was actually a piece of fry bread, a traditional Native American food.

"I'm feeding my daughter doughnuts and cookies (animal crackers), and they failed to see there was also Chex Mix and a stick of string cheese, which I thought was an adequate lunch for my daughter," Lotcher said.
Comment:  "Adequate" must be a synonym for high in calories and poor in nutrition.
