The Oreo Cookie Controversy
Earlier this week a mom in the Denver area sent her 4-year-old daughter to school with Oreo cookies packed in her lunchbox. Later that day, the 4-year-old came home from school with the Oreos (uneaten) and a note from the teacher.
According to a report from KMGH-TV, the note from the teacher said that the parents needed to pack a nutritious lunch which included a fruit, vegetable and a healthy snack. (She did have a sandwich and some cheese in her lunchbox, too.) Apparently, Oreo cookies are not considered a healthy snack by the school. Bummer.
So, what do you think? Would you be upset if the school wouldn't let your child eat what YOU packed in their lunch? Let me know! For the record, I'm probably one of those moms who wouldn't be very happy getting the note...just sayin'...

A spokeswoman with Aurora Public Schools says they gave Natalee a healthy alternative to the cookies.
Pearson says Natalee attends the private Children's Academy as a public school student under the state's preschool option program.
