Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Mom Packs Lunch For Baby Girl. Hours Later, She’s Sent Home With Angry Red Note

No parent wants to get an angry note from their child’s teacher, and they especially don’t want a note over something like a slice of chocolate cake.

Unfortunately for a mother in Australia, that’s what happened. She sent her little girl to kindergarten with some chocolate cake packed in her lunch.

The mom had no idea that what would happen next was the school shaming her and deciding her lunch choices were so unhealthy that they warranted an angry note home.

The mother shared her encounter with her friend, Melinda Tankard Reist, a writer who has a prominent social media following. After hearing the story, Melinda quickly spread the word about this unkind form of mommy shaming.


In Australia, the public school system encourages parents to pack healthy lunches by categorizing different types of food as green (good), yellow (ok), and red (bad.)

While it is a good idea in theory, it can be a bit much to send a shaming and condescending note like the one above home because of a single treat packed in the lunch box.

Melinda feels similarly, posting her own thoughts on the matter alongside the note.

She wrote:”My friend (mother of 8 healthy children, what follows relating to no. 7) received this today from her 3 year old’s kindy. I told her to put in two slices tomorrow and tell them to get lost.”

Melinda even noted that both of the little girl’s parents have health science degree and take healthy eating seriously.

Melinda also said, “The slice was homemade for her brother’s birthday and as per family tradition, leftovers went to school the next day.”

They even discovered that the homemade cake doesn’t even violate the school system rules, which specifically banned processed, packaged cakes.

Via Little Things:

Not only are Mom and Dad being shamed for how they choose to feed their children, the little kids might see that big red frowny face and start to develop an unhealthy sense of some foods being “bad” and other foods being “good” without understanding that it’s OK to eat special desserts and treats in moderation.
