They say it takes a village to raise a child. It’s a good feeling to know that the neighbors, your friends, the mailman, teachers, etc are looking out for your kiddo. But sometimes people can overstep and that can be a real pain in the arse.
Teachers who actually give a damn about your child are awesome. When they are willing to go that extra mile to help your offspring academically and socially is amazing. Kids can also be weird about their lunches, so when school officials are ensuring they are actually eating it’s wonderful. But can the school go so far as to dictate WHAT you put in your child’s lunch? And if so….are these rules a little too strict?
I was once chastised by my son’s school for popping a rice krispie square in his lunch. I get not wanting to deal with a kid that has engorged themselves on chocolate and 10,000 boxes of dunkaroos for their lunch…but one measly rice krispie square? C’mon. They deserve a treat too, right?!?!
One mom was “seriously not happy” after receiving a note from her young daughter’s teacher reprimanding her for including Sultanas in her lunch. What else was in there? A sandwich roll, two boiled eggs, an orange and a kiwifruit. Seems like a pretty balanced meal to me but what do I know.
Here’s a closer look at the note:
The note reads, “The Sultanas packed for your child today is unacceptable at kindy due to it’s high sugar content.”
In case you were wondering, Sultanas are RAISINS.
