Mum leaves brutal note on daughter's lunch box after teacher told her how to eat lunch

Mum leaves brutal note on daughter's lunch box after teacher told her how to eat lunch

The note has left people divided

A mum has left people divided over the note she'd left in her lunchbox for her child’s teacher to read.

After her daughter came home and explained what happened, business owner, Caroline, known as on TikTok, decided to take matters into her own hands.

Caroline runs Pezzi - a company that makes eating utensils for small children.

According to the mum, the teacher had allegedly made her daughter eat her food in a certain order - that being ‘good’ foods first and ‘bad’ foods last.

In this case, her sandwich and some cucumber was considered 'good', while her cookie was considered 'bad'.

In the caption of the clip, she wrote: “My three-year-old came home from school yesterday, telling me that her teacher told her that she had to eat all of her 'good' foods before she ate her 'bad' foods.

“She couldn’t have her cookie before eating her sandwich and cucumbers.

“In this moment, I felt a little frustrated by the antiquated instruction from the teacher.

“I will say, this was not my internal dialogue growing up, but because of the information that I have from so many great accounts created by moms and experts, in the field of childhood and nutrition, I am armed with better responses, knowledge and practices for my kids.

Caroline's little girl had been told to eat her 'good' foods before her 'bad' ones.

“Three years old. At three years old someone has told her that foods are good or bad.

“I am so proud that she sensed something was off - to know that was not right enough to tell me about it.”

"If you only eat carrots or broccoli your body won’t have protein it needs to grow strong muscles. If you only eat chicken, your body won’t have enough energy to do things like run and play all day long." she continued to say.

"We need little bits of everything to make sure that we are able to learn and play and grow all day long."

So she wrote a note in her daughter's lunchbox for the teacher the next day.

She said: “Hi! Evelyn has our permission to eat lunch in any order she chooses.

“None of her foods are 'good' or 'bad' - they are just food!

“Thanks, Caroline and Joey.”

People were split over whether this was the right approach to take - but the majority agreed that there was no such thing as ‘good’ and ‘bad’ food.

Caroline left a note in her daughter's lunchbox.

One person said: “As a teacher, your response is 100 percent right.

“The narrative of 'good' and 'bad' food can actually encourage harmful eating habits to develop.”

Another added: “As a former teacher, my thought was the parents packed their kid's lunch with the intent they eat it; in whatever order or amount.”

However, some disagreed, with one saying: “I’m sure the teacher wasn’t trying to be cruel.

“Maybe you could have talked to the teacher instead of a passive aggressive note on your three-year-old's lunch?”

While another said it was the teacher's 'job' to check if she was eating.

In response to the first comment, Caroline said: "I don't think she was trying to be cruel! I don't get to see the lunch teacher and didn't think the note was passive aggressive."
