No Bagged Lunches

That's the policy at a public elementary school in Chicago.  Unless students have a medical condition, they're not allowed to bring lunches from home.  That means they either eat school lunches or go without lunch.

The principal says the rule is for their own good; she believes that the lunches that the school provides are healthier than what students bring from home.  But it's not a popular plan with the students who want to bring their own lunches, and critics say it shouldn't be up to the school to decide what kids eat.

What are your thoughts on this?
