A furious mother fueled the discussion about the rules of the school meal tobacco after the teacher had thrown away her child's sweet treat.
Posting to an Australian budget group on Facebook, the Queensland-based woman asked members if they thought it appropriate to do this.
& # 39; Do you think it's okay for a teacher to throw away a piece of your child's lunch that you've packed just because it & # 39; is sweet & # 39; and the teacher thinks it's not fair, because not every other child has a candy? & # 39; She wrote.
& # 39; When I say sweet, I mean something like a chocolate cookie, muesli bar with chocolate bar, cake, chocolate mousse, etc. Regardless of whether it's fat, sugar reduced or not. & # 39;
A furious mother went to the internet to show that her child's teacher threw a treat out of her lunch box (stock image)
Group members were quickly prepared to share in her anger with hundreds of commentators who said they thought the teacher was wrong.
Some said they should have just sent the treat home instead of throwing it in the trash.
& # 39; No. You paid for that. If the teacher is not happy, she can hold it and let you know why she took it, & a group member said.
& # 39; It is never good to throw it out! What a terrible experience for a child; we went insane when it comes to food but they cross a line when they shame such a child, & another one said.
The members agreed that although they support nutrition education, they think that what was described in the post & # 39; embarrassed and offensive & # 39; is.
& # 39; It is never good to throw it out! What a terrible experience for a child; "We've gone crazy when it comes to food, but they cross a line if they embarrass a child like that," a group member said
& # 39; This is not how we learn nutrition; I hate the way lunch boxes are now being checked. Attracting food groups; embarrassing children, & a woman said.
Others told the original poster to make a complaint to the school and a woman who worked at a school office said teachers can give advice, but they can't throw food away.
She added that it is not up to teachers to monitor children's lunch boxes and suggested that the mother put a note in the child's lunch box to that teacher who advised the same.
This is not the first time that such a thing has happened, because a mother has become very angry after being told not to pack her homemade cookies in his lunch box – unless there is one for everyone in his class.
Joanne said that the uneaten cookies were sent home from the school with a handwritten note after her boy was not allowed to eat the treat.

The comment said: & # 39; Dear Mommy, please avoid sending cookies, unless there is one for everyone. It is difficult for the other children when someone has acted. Thank you. & # 39;
Taking on Facebook, Joanne said she was shocked by the comment, but she wanted to see the teacher the next morning to get an explanation.
& # 39; I sent this note home in my son's lunch box because he had home-baked cookies in his lunch box. I was shocked but didn't fall asleep, I thought I'd talk to the teacher the next day to see what she meant, & she said.
But when she met the teacher, she was & # 39; gobsmacked & # 39; by her answer.
& # 39; She said it & # 39; policy was that home-made goods are not encouraged unless there was enough to share with everyone & # 39 ;. I asked why and tried to talk to her openly, but she said it was not encouraged, & the mother said.
What are dietitian Susie Burrell's tips for a healthy lunch box?
Sandwich, wraps or crackers
Wholegrain and whole meal varieties are the best and contain a protein-rich filling such as tuna or egg, because it helps keep children full throughout the day.
Fresh fruit is always the best, because dried fruit, fruit juice, fruit sticks and belts are high in sugar and are quickly digested.
Milk, cheese and yogurt provide calcium and proteins for healthy bones, teeth and growth.
Try to place only one packaged muesli or snack bar in your child's lunch box every day and try to choose options that contain less than 400 kJ per server. Homemade snacks such as banana bread or mini-muffins are better options in terms of nutritional value.

Dietitian Susie Burrell has said that a healthy lunch box should also contain whole grain sandwiches with protein and fruit. vegetables and a snack
& # 39; I asked & # 39; if a packet of Tiny Teddies or Shapes would be fine and she said: & # 39; that'll be alright. & # 39; So … I was wondering how a homemade cookie with four ingredients is not encouraged, but an option for a processed package supermarket was okay?
& # 39; She kept saying it was the policy and that the parent committee is implementing the policy, so I should record it. & # 39;
She explained that the incident took place at the beginning of 2017, but she later shared it with her Facebook page, which has since become outraged by fellow parents.
A woman said: & # 39; That's madness! You do a great job in educating others. Always go one family at a time and the ripple effect will catch up. Some are slow learners. & # 39;
Another said: & # 39; This is hard! I was asked to put sultanas in my child's lunch box because it was considered too unhealthy, but packaged muesli bars, cakes, and roll-ups are fine. Sigh. & # 39;
