Another mum has been shamed for “packing” sometimes food in her daughter’s school lunch.
Parent Jessica Gianoni’s four-year-old daughter came home from school last week telling her mum: “You’re in trouble”.
A note had been placed in the lunchbox and the item in question swapped out for a healthier option.
"WHOOPS!!" read the note.
"Sorry, cake is a sometimes food. Today your child was packed a 'sometimes' food in their lunch box that doesn't align with our Healthy Eating Policy."
“If you need suggestions for healthy food alternatives please speak to our friendly kindy staff”.
Speaking to Adelaide Now, Gianoni said the note was “very condescending”, adding, “as a parent, I should be able to choose what my child should have."
“She had a container of fruit including a banana, a sandwich and rice crackers. It wasn’t like the cake was the only thing she had to eat.
“Instead of putting the note in her lunch box, she (the teacher) could have spoken to me when I picked Isabel up.”
Gianoni isn’t the first mum to be ‘shamed’ for packing cake in a lunchbox.
Another South Australian mum was mortified after her child's preschool sent home a note condemning her for including a sweet treat in her three-year-old's lunchbox.
'Your child has chocolate slice from the red food category today,' read the note. "Please choose healthier options for kindy.'
Incredulously, the note included a red frowning face.
