Child’s Lunch Sent Home as Unhealthy

By 965koit on May 1, 2019

Do you try to make an effort to send your child to school with a healthy lunch? I’m sure you do, but sometimes, a parent has to do what a parent has to do.

But apparently, that wasn’t good enough for an Australian school

This school sent a kid’s lunchbox back home with food still inside because they claim the items weren’t healthy enough.

Inside the lunchbox were fruits, veggies, protein balls, and homemade sausage rolls.

The school wouldn’t let the kid eat the sausage rolls. They were sent home with a note that said:  

“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 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.”

What do you think about this? Should schools sent home unhealthy lunches?
