AURORA, Colo. (AP) — A suburban Denver 4-year-old came home from school disappointed, with untouched Oreos and a note from her teacher.

Denver news station KMGH-TV reports that preschooler Natalee Pearson told her mom Friday that she wasn’t allowed to eat the cookies in her lunchbox.

The note told parents to pack a nutritious lunch that includes a fruit, vegetable and healthy snack.

Natalee’s mother, Leeza Pearson, says she doesn’t agree with the decision by the Children’s Academy in Aurora.

She says Natalie also had a sandwich and cheese and that the school took things too far.

A spokeswoman with Aurora Public Schools says they gave Natalee a healthy alternative to the cookies.

Pearson says Natalee attends the private Children’s Academy as a public school student under the state’s preschool option program.
