But despite her good intentions, some other mums took it as an opportunity to criticise her lunchbox food choices.
‘It doesn't look like real food, no wonder she won't eat it,’ said one social media user.
Added another: ‘Lol, doesn't look like food to me.’ Said a third: ‘It's not a bad thing that the child won't eat them.’
But the mum didn’t take the criticism lying down, saying ‘shame on you!’ to those who’d slammed her.
‘Well stuff me for trying to help out someone who wanted some lunch bits for their kids,’ she wrote.
‘Some people can't afford to [buy] certain non necessary items for their kids. And here I am trying to do something nice and people have the audacity to cut me down. SHAME ON YOU!’
It’s the latest in a long line of ‘lunchbox shaming’ scandals which have hit social media over the last few months. Earlier this year a kindergarten teacher criticised a mum for packing TOO MUCH in her daughter’s lunch, while another teacher recently sent home a ‘condescending’ note to a mum after she packed a sausage roll in her son’s lunchbox which was deemed ‘unhealthy’.
