Mum rages after teacher pens rude note slamming six-year-old’s ‘unhealthy’ lunch

A woman was left mortified when she received a nasty letter from her six-year-old son's teacher.

The mum had sent her boy to school with a lunchbox made up of crackers, ham, fruit juice, yoghurt and the odd piece of fruit.

But her son's teacher wasn't too pleased with the items in the lunch bag and she made her feelings crystal clear.

Posting on Facebook in the Lunchbox Ideas Australia group, the mum revealed how the teacher ridiculed the lunch.

The teacher even suggested her son to eat less dry biscuits with a lunch made up of more fruit and vegetables.

She said: "So this is how I pack my son's lunch for school, most days it will come home full and he never eats the fruit."

The mum added: "My son is six and has ASD LVL2 and SPD.

"He is extremely particular with what he eats and only has a very small group of foods that he will eat.

"These mostly include dry biscuits, ham, plain bread, plain pita, no sauces, no dips, no vegetables, no spreads on bread etc.

"He only eats very dry foods that don't have much moisture in them at all. Do you see a problem with this lunch?

"Today his teacher told him that he needs to eat more fruit and vegetables and that his lunches contain too many dry biscuit options."

She revealed the teacher was aware of her son being autistic and called out their criticism of his lunchbox as "unprofessional".

The mum added: "She's aware of the fact that he has autism and SPD but still has the audacity to tell me that his lunch isn't healthy.

"I am absolutely fuming at her unprofessional behaviour and lack of compassion and understanding toward my son's disability.

"He is extremely particular with what he eats and only has a very small group of foods that he will eat.

"These mostly include dry biscuits, ham, plain bread, plain pita, no sauces, no dips, no vegetables, no spreads on bread."

The mum wanted advice from other parents who may have found themselves in a similar position.

And others jumped to her defence, with one writing: "Tell her she needs a new profession. You're doing a great job mummy.

"It looks fine to me. Best he eats something than nothing. Put in a complaint."

Another added: "I'm a teacher and my son is a fussy eater. I'm so sorry your son's teacher has behaved this way.

"If she is aware of your son's needs, she behaved in an unprofessional manner. To make a comment like that to any student is wrong."
