One mother has come under fire for her friendly advice that is putting pressure on other parents at the lunch box.
What mothers do and don’t have for their children’s lunches – and compare the beautifully arranged boxes, or the lunch offer described in the Bento box – she shared a picture of her efforts.
I am posting Family Low Down Tips and Ideas Facebook. Page, her picture shows a typical baby lunch – a wrap, an apple, a little chocolate and some small crackers and grapes in separate tubs.
Trying to get to the point where it doesn’t matter what lunch box you have, he said: “Everyone fed, no one died, you’re fine. It’s all from the same hole. Going down! “
But instead of messages of support, her post – which has since been deleted – drew hundreds of complaints that she did not cut grapes for her nine-year-old son.
One said, “I would suggest cutting grapes.” Another said, “I still harvest grapes as an adult so I wouldn’t feel safe sending them that way.”
And the post has sparked further on-page discussion between mothers debating their children’s box boxes.
When another mom shared a picture of a plastic tub with silicone cake cases to separate the snacks, another replied: “It’s funny! My kids have a normal lunch bag and I made sandwiches, yogurt, fruit, crisps, cheesecake and a little chocolate … it’s done! “
“Who has the time for that?” Another said. “Sandwiches, curries, fruit, yoga and breakfast are fine.”
Others said that some parents are spending too much time competing with each other and may be producing junk food in the process.
“These blazing posts are making me cringe,” he said. “These kids are being spoiled. Sandwiches, fruit, yogurt and cheese. This world is full of winged eater Jamie Olivers.”
Do you spend a lot of time arranging your child’s lunch? Do you always make sure that the grapes are salted? Do you think parents have become too competitive? Let us know your thoughts in the comments..
