When I was in school, I was always a buyer. That means you buy your lunch. Stuff like pizza, grilled cheese, pasta, etc. Although I did envy the kids who brought their lunches, because many times they had cooler things than I did -- and certainly more snacks.

Kid and teenagers love snacking. It's normal, right?

What happened if a school or schools in Western, Central or Upstate New York decided to have a snack limit for kids? One school in Pennsylvania is doing just that.

According to Penn Live, a junior/senior high school is putting a snack limit in place after excessive snacking problems.

Aliquippa Junior/Senior High School will now only allow students to bring one bag of chips into school, no more than 4 ounces and one closed drink, no more than 20 ounces.

The reason for the ultra strict snacking rules is due to "gross" number of snacks that students were bringing into the school.

If a student brings his or her lunch to school, the same exact rules will apply as well. Some parents of these students are calling the school and the new rules, "the potato chip police," according to Yahoo! News.

Would such a rule come to schools in New York State? I do remember a lot of candy and drinks that students at my high school would bring in, but to the point it becomes such a big problem that this rule needs to be put into place?

I'm not there, but I would wager there would be a lot of upset students and parents if this were to happen at schools in New York State and where I live in Western New York.
