ost parents would probably agree that their children should eat a healthy diet and everything in moderation. But what happens when the school steps in and essentially dictates what you can pack in their lunchbags, even if you feel that it's a healthy choice?
That was the case for a mom in Australia who was sent this note home with her kindergartener for having packed sultanas in her lunch.
A friend of the mom in question posted the note on a Facebook group called Oh So Busy Mom, and it quickly went viral.
School officials specifically noted that "the sultanas packed for your child today is unacceptable at kindy due to its high sugar content."
Which is a little bit weird, because if you know what a sultana is, then you’d hardly find it amiss in a child’s lunch.
In case you are unfamiliar with sultanas...
They’re just raisins made from white seedless grapes.
Most schools would be pretty damn thrilled to see their students eating raisins instead of candy or something else.
But apparently, sultanas are “unacceptable” for Kindergarten!
If you think that's a little bit weird, you aren't alone.
When shared on Facebook, other parents were equally shocked, and even pointed out the irony that dried fruit was among the list of “acceptable” snacks on the note.
