She claims the school responded: 'We don't police food we aren't the parent, it's about education and teaching them about how to fuel their body. We tell [students] "you've got a great lunchbox there but how about you leave that snack for when mummy gets you?"'
Infuriated, the mum wrote: ‘Well okay then that basically means one: You have policed. Two: she's not allowed and three: You've played parent.’
Asking for advice on what other ‘healthy snacks’ to pack, the mum said: 'I need more choices because it's starting to get stupid. Bakery items are easy done I'm working on making berry and coconut muffins next week.’
The scandal caused many people to voice their anger.
‘This whole food policing at school is just getting out of hand. The older generation must be rolling their eyelids at us right now,’ said one commenter. Added another: ‘Who do they think they are telling you what to feed your child? It’s outrageous.’
Said a third: ‘Poor old Tiny Teddies are now getting the chop. My kids live on those things!’
