- Alicia Liebel Berg, from Minnesota, claims that she has received a letter from the son’s school
- List says what should be during lunch and claims that ‘pickles don’t count’ as vegetables
- She went to Twitter to ask ‘the masses’ if they agreed with the school’s decision
A mother has claimed that she had shamed the lunch box by her four-year-old son’s school because she put pickles in his lunch box because they don’t count as vegetables.
Alicia Liebel Berg, from Minnesota, went to twitter to reveal that she had received a note from her child’s school saying that her child’s required portion of vegetables was “missing” that day in his lunch.
The checklist, based on information from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), states that each child’s lunch must contain “two vegetables” or “fruit and vegetables.”
Through social media, Alicia claimed that the school had no problem accepting ‘sliced cucumbers’ as vegetables in her four-year-old’s lunch on another day.

She said: ‘The All-American Lunch Box Saga today has a big debate. This requires a survey of the masses.
‘Is a pickle a vegetable? Does it “count”? Guess. His sliced cucumbers are. “
According to the checklist, parents must provide a daily amount of milk, proteins, cereals or bread and fruit in addition to vegetables during their child’s lunch.
The note states: “Note, a lunch must contain 1/4 cups of each of two different vegetables or a 1/4 cup of each fruit and vegetables.”
Alicia, a mother of two, later tweeted the USDA and insisted that the “American farmer” would “disagree” that pickles are not called vegetables.

Alicia, a mother of two, later tweeted the USDA and maintained that the “American farmer” “did not agree at all” that the school does not classify pickles as vegetables
This was not the first time Alicia was summoned for a clear lack of vegetables in her son’s packed lunch.
On January 11, she posted another image of a lunch checklist that had been circled “vegetable” because it was “missing” in her child’s meal.
In addition to the photo, she said: “This is what our lives as parents have become. Difficult. Too damn hard.

Other social media users took the comments from Alicia’s post to live with her lunch dilemma
“Ensure that the check boxes are checked for some government monitoring committee. I work hard and put love in his daily pocket lunch.
‘And yes. I’m annoyed. He is only in pre-K !!!!! ”
Other social media users took the comments from Alicia’s post to live with her dilemma.
A user said, “You know who wrote it that eats cold hot dogs buzzing in cheese for lunch.”
Another added: “That is certainly an exaggeration. I would start by choosing one thing that I would leave out every day to cause more unnecessary work for them. “
“OMG! That’s crazy, “said a third.
