The girl’s original lunch consisted of a turkey and cheese sandwich on white wheat bread, potato chips, a banana and apple juice.
The assistant superintendent of the school system says he agrees that the lunch was healthy, but he says it was missing milk, a key part of what is considered to be a healthy meal under state guidelines.
The girl’s grandmother says the state should not be inspecting lunches and should instead focus solely on academics.
