North Carolina officials have said there was a misunderstanding when a preschooler’s homemade lunch was sent home for not meeting certain nutritional requirements, but now a second mother from the same school has come forward exclusively to The Blaze to say the same thing happened to her daughter.

Diane Zambrano says her 4-year-old daughter, Jazlyn, is in the same West Hoke Elementary School class as the little girl whose lunch gained national attention earlier this week. When Zambrano picked Jazlyn up from school late last month, she was told by Jazlyn’s teacher that the lunch she had packed that day did not meet the necessary guidelines and that Jazlyn had been sent to the cafeteria.

The lunch Zambrano packed for her daughter? A cheese and salami sandwich on a wheat bun with apple juice. The lunch she got in the cafeteria? Chicken nuggets, a sweet potato, bread and milk.

“She never eats breakfast or lunch at the school,” Zambrano said of her daughter during an interview with The Blaze. “We always wake up early and make her lunch.”

Do you think this school was making the right choice when it prevented these girls from eating the lunch they brought?

She's spreading her lo-fat cheer among the military too!

“Thank you for eating your vegetables,” she told airmen at a mess hall in Little Rock, Ark., as several stared guiltily into half-eaten plates of broccoli. “We need you strong.”


She's having the military serve more fruits and veggie.

.“When our service members make healthy eating a priority in their lives, the rest of us are more likely to make it a priority in our lives,” she said in a written statement. “Simply put, this is America’s entire military once again stepping forward to lead by example.”

Obesity is now a national security issue. I've never seen any obese in the miltary.

You're against the government dictating what our military eats?

And there's now way that people are going to stand by and allow the state to replace meals that come from home. It sounds like there's a specific employee that needs to be trained or fired.

That wasn't really the point. If the military serves food to the military it's already making a decision on what to serve. I just thought it was funny that she acted like a momma about them eating their vegetables when some obviously didn't eat them anyway. They're grown men for heaven's sake.

And there's now way that people are going to stand by and allow the state to replace meals that come from home. It sounds like there's a specific employee that needs to be trained or fired.

I think you're being naive about this administration.

During World War II, at least 40 percent of potential military recruits were undernourished. So after the war, military leaders helped convince Congress to pass the National School Lunch Program (http://www.fns.usda.gov/cnd/lunch/AboutLunch/ProgramHistory.htm) to make subsidized meals part of kids' nutritional curriculum.

And, maybe partly as a result, today's soldiers are an inch-and-a-half taller on average.

But now the military has the opposite problem, young people are getting too much nutrition. A growing number of potential recruits are "too fat to fight (http://www.missionreadiness.org/MR%20National%20Obesity%20Report.pdf)."

More than 9 million Americans of prime recruiting age are too heavy to join up, says the group, called Mission: Readiness (http://www.missionreadiness.org/about_us.html).

"Overall only 1 in 4 of our young adults between the ages of 17 and 24 is eligible for military service," says Rear Adm. Jamie Barnett (ret.) (http://www.navy.mil/navydata/bios/navybio.asp?bioID=37). Obesity is one of the main reasons, he says.

The proportion of recruits rejected for being overweight jumped from 12 percent in 1995 to 21 percent in 2008. Other categories for rejection include failure to graduate from high school and having a criminal record.

The group cites federal health statistics that show more than 40 percent of adults from 17 to 24 are overweight or obese in 39 states — up from only one state a decade ago. In Kentucky, Alabama and Mississippi, more than half of young adults are too heavy, according to the definition used by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The new report says the military discharges more than 1,200 first-term enlistees each year because of weight problems. That costs the armed services about $50,000 per person — or $60 million — to recruit and train replacements.

The average overweight 17-to-24-year-old would have to lose 34 pounds to achieve "normal" weight, the CDC says.

Mission: Readiness unveiled its report at a Capitol Hill press conference designed to nudge Congress toward reauthorization of a school nutrition program that would restrict junk food and high-calorie beverages, improve the quality of menus, expand eligibility for free school meals, and improve nutrition education.

Last year, the National Academy of Sciences' Institute of Medicine recommended an upgrade for school meals (http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2009/10/school_lunches_need_a_nutritio.html) that would limit calories and boost the amounts of fruits and vegetables served.

The Obama administration has asked for $1 billion a year in additional funding for school nutrition. The Senate version of the bill, now awaiting action, would add about half that much. The House hasn't yet acted on the issue.

The number of troops diagnosed as overweight or obese has more than doubled since the start of the Iraq war, yet another example of stress and strains of continuing combat deployments, according to a recent Pentagon study.

The review, contained in the January edition of the Defense Department's Medical Surveillance Monthly Report, raises concerns about the overall readiness as demands on the military continue to increase, says Dr. Michael Kilpatrick, director of strategic communication for Pentagon health affairs.

"Stress and return from deployment were the most frequently cited reasons" for gaining weight, the study said. The largest increase in diagnoses of overweight and obese troops came in the last five years, the report said.

From 1998 to 2002, the number of servicemembers diagnosed as overweight remained steady at about one or two out of 100. But those numbers increased after 2003, according to the study, and today nearly one in 20 are diagnosed as clinically overweight.

Says stress is the cause of that dirk. I thought you weren't accepted in if you were obese, which is not the same as just being overweight.

Depends, in my company we had quite of few overweight people so they stuck them in fat camp for a couple of weeks.

Yep, I find pretty bad when just three states — Delaware, Virginia and Nebraska have 20 minutes of mandatory elementary-school recess a day. 30 minutes was the norm when I attended elementary school.

I honestly believe lack of exercise is the big reason for our growing obesity problem with kids. The problem isn't 20 minutes or more at schools it is what they do when they are at home.

There's a legitimate question to be asked about whether the military is being fed the food they need to accomplish their mission or whether they're being fed a diet for political purposes/grandstanding. I suspect that the military is still strong enough to resist the latter, but the article raises the question.

For example, soldiers in the field need lots more calories than the average person so their meals are typically a lot higher in calories than the obesity police would recommend for those of us who are chair jockeys.

My wife's trainer told her that the schools are making kids get milk, even if they are allergic and the kid throws it out because the school has to dispense x amount of milk per day to keep getting the Fed $'s.

Agree and disagree. While it isn't soley what the do at school that 20 minutes is much needed and very beneficial exercise. Particularly when kids aren't as active after school.

30 minutes? Per recess? I think we got 3-15 minute recesses.

We had morning recess, lunch, and afternoon recess...totaling about an hour. I used to play marbles, or believe it or not, dodge ball or "wall ball", which was dodge ball using a tennis ball or racquetball.

We had smear the queer too, now that I think of it. When I lived in Spain, I used to try to teach the Spanish kids how to play football (Futbol Americano) but they never could get it...it wound up being smear the queer.
