The Daily Mail reports that Riley Pearson, 6, has received a four day suspension for bringing a bag of Mini Cheddars to school in his lunch bag. Pearson is a student at Colnbrook C of E Primary School. Teachers said he broke the school’s healthy eating rules.

The school sent a letter to Pearson’s family notifying them that Pearson would be excluded from school activities for four days. The school claims he has broken the rule on several occasions. Parents received a notice from the school that only healthy lunches would be permitted. Parents cannot pack chocolate, sweets, fizzy drinks, or any other unhealthy food items.

The school also said if a child brings in an unhealthy lunch, he or she will receive a school lunch. Parents will then receive a bill for the school lunch. Pearson’s mother said her son is underweight and could use some extra weight, and eats healthy at home. She doesn’t understand how the school can regulate what food she gives to her son.
