I’m not sure what kind of school this is, but it seems like they have too much time on their hands!

For whatever reason, schools around the country have decided to take up a parenting role when it comes to what the school children are being fed for snack. It is clearly a parents right to pack their child any sort of snack they choose for school. At what point is it okay for the school to intervene and send home a note explaining that their child’s snack was unacceptable.

As a father of a soon-to-be 10-year-old, I have packed my fair share of snacks for school and I would be quite enraged if I received a note like the one above.

This example of a school intervening in a parents snacking duty involves (wait for it) a box of sultanas (a.k.a small raisins). Cheree Lawrence, the woman behind the Australian mommy blog Oh So Busy Mum, reposted a photo of a school’s note that she claims to have seen in the Lunchbox Ideas Australia Facebook group. “The sultanas packed for your child today is unacceptable at [kindergarten] due to its high sugar content,” the note read.

What do you think? Should the school be intervening in a parents snack packing abilities?
