Colorado school confiscates … Oreo cookies? (Video)

Searches and seizures … in school lunch boxes?

A Colorado mom packed Oreos in her daughter’s lunch only to find the delicious cookies returned to her with a finger-wagging note from the school admonishing her against feeding her child “non-nutritious foods.”

The note, shared with ABC News, appears below:

Putting aside the fact that the prohibition against sending potatoes to school makes no sense at all, this is government gone wild. Parents should decide what their children eat, not school administrators.

This incident is the latest in a spate of stories that show the nanny state becoming more intrusive and doctrinaire — bureaucrats from the U.S. Department of Agriculture recently announced they would begin weighing children in daycare as part of a study mandated by First Lady Michelle Obama’s Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act — while simultaneously encouraging schools to become more permissive when it comes to teaching sex education: Last year, a middle school in California asked 13-year-olds to stand under signs that said how far they would be willing to go sexually.

Here is a video of the ABC report on the Oreo prohibition.
