Mum furious as she gets ‘condescending’ note from teacher in child’s lunch box

She claims she packed him a "healthy" lunch

A mum was left fuming when she opened her son’s lunchbox to find a note from his teacher about his food choices.

The woman took to Facebook to vent her frustration when the school banned her child from eating sausage rolls, even though she claims they were “healthy”.

The mum, from Australia, shared a photo of the note to the Mums Who Cook & Bake Facebook group.

The woman revealed she had made her son veggie sausage rolls along with fruits, vegetables, cheese and protein balls.

But she was shocked when her son’s school wrote her a “condescending note”, saying the sausage rolls were “too high in fat” for a packed lunch.

The note read: “Let’s work together to make it easier for children to make healthy choices!

“There were lots of great choices in this lunchbox however sausage rolls [are] too high in fat (please provide nutrient value if they are homemade).”

The note continued: “[The food] did not fit with our service’s nutrition guidelines.

“For some healthier lunchbox ideas, ask an educator or go to the Good for Kids website.”

Alongside the image of the note, the mum wrote: “In my opinion, these sausage rolls are pretty healthy for him I will be sending the information back to the school.

“They do not allow the food item to be eaten once they attach the note. I had a feeling this would happen so I packed extra for him.

“I also packed two Milo balls just to see if they also said no to them, guess what they were allowed.”

Fellow mums were quick to share their thoughts on the note.

One person commented: “That’s ridiculous! If they’re going to be policing lunchboxes, they should provide lunch then, just like they do around the world.”

Another wrote: “Preschool teachers are not nutritionists. I’d be furious. How dare they.”
