Angry mum shares how her child’s sweet treat was thrown out by a teacher.
Posting in an Australian budgeting group on Facebook, the Queensland mum asked members whether they thought it was appropriate to do this, shared Daily Mail.
‘Do you think it’s okay for a teacher to throw away an item of your child’s lunch that you packed just because it’s a “sweet” and the teacher believes it’s not fair as not every other child has a sweet?’ She wrote.
‘When I say sweet I mean anything like a chocolate biscuit, chocolate coated muesli bar, cake, chocolate mousse etc. Regardless of whether it’s fat, sugar reduced or not.’
Group members were quick to share in her anger with hundreds of commenters saying they thought the teacher was in the wrong.
Some said they should have just sent the treat home instead of throwing it in the bin.
Members agreed that although they support teaching nutrition, they think what was described in the post is just ‘shaming and hurtful’.
Do you think it is OK for a teacher to just toss out kids lunch treats?
