Sharing a photo of her son’s lunch with the caption ‘The struggle is real’, the note reads: 'My lunchbox may not look healthy but it's all I will eat. Please be patient as I work through my sensory issues.’
The photo shows her son’s lunch, which included a corn cob, a piece of fruit, some popcorn and Sesame Snaps.
And while the mum says she wasn’t fussed about judgemental teachers, she wanted to help her son explain the lunch if faced with criticism.
'As awesome as my child is, he isn't able to quite articulate exactly why he never has a sandwich or wrap for lunch and prefers to munch on popcorn instead,' she shared.
The mum was met with a wave of support from other mums, who commended her for helping raise awareness.
'This is such a great solution! While it's sad such a message needs to be written it helps teacher awareness. The trend for healthy food monitoring is at its extreme,' said one social media user.
Added another: 'Looks healthy babe. I love your note, that's awesome, I'm going to borrow for my boy for kindy. I adore your advocacy for your child.’
