I have seen many teachers comment many times that ”teachers should be allowed to teach”.
Well, parents should be allowed to parent.
This is a parenting-led thing. It is great to have an involved teacher who is genuinely educating.
However, a teacher is not a parent. A teacher is not a nutritionist. A teacher is a teacher.
Send healthy eating guidelines out in notes to parents. Have health meetings with a nutritionist or dietitian once a year as part of parent-teacher night. Do NOT involve the children.
Let teachers be teachers. They focus on curriculum.
Let parents do the rest.
