Who Feeds Their Kid a Smartie Sandwich?

In the English county of Lincolnshire, a parent set off a nutritional firestorm in the local school system when she sent her child to school with a smartie sandwich for lunch.

A Smartie Sandwich.

The child’s teacher spoke to school administrators who contacted public health representatives and before you could say rampant childhood obesity…. a taxpayer-supported “healthy lunch” program had been launched county wide….resulting in improved behavior, concentration and writing skills.

Of course, the NHS is already saying that they won’t be able to continue this lunch program indefinitely as it relies on already scarce tax dollars.

Tax dollars being spent on gastric bypass surgeries and type 2 diabetes treatments.

Sigh.
