NORTH CAROLINA - A North Carolina grandmother is very upset after her granddaughter's home-made lunch was taken away at school.

School officials said it wasn't nutritious enough.

It happened to a 5-year-old pre-k student. The student's lunch was taken away and she was forced to eat cafeteria chicken nuggets.

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.
