- Eight-year-old’s lavish lunchbox has divided opinions on Facebook
- The boy asked his mother for lobster tail with cranberries and candied pecans
- She also gave him orange, white peach and three gourmet KitKat bars
- While some thought it was too much, most admitted they were jealous of the spread
The parents of an eight-year-old boy have sparked a lively debate on social media for feeding their son lobster tail and candied pecans in his lunchbox, as he “asked.”
In a post uploaded to a Facebook community group, the boy’s father shared a photo of the lavish lunch of lobster salad with cranberries, blueberries and nuts, three gourmet KitKat bars, and orange and white peach slices.
‘Hello again! My wife kills it for our son. He asked for lobster,” he wrote.
“After this photo was taken, she removed the shell and cut the lobster tail. It’s meant to be served cold.’

The decadent spread, which garnered 1,600 “likes” less than 24 hours after it was shared online, sparked thousands of enthusiastic responses.
Some thought it was exaggerated, but most praised the mother for exposing her son to refined tastes and broadening his understanding of food.
‘Dear Lord! I want rich parents to feed me lobster for lunch,” one woman wrote.
A second said, “My daughter had the same lunch last week, but muffins instead of the KitKats and instead of lobster, peanut butter and jelly.”
Despite a few sarcastic digs, the lunch was praised by the majority of the group.
‘I love this. Sometimes my darlings have a craving for the not-so-normal for lunch, and we embrace it. Your wife is fine!’ wrote a woman.
Another said: ‘This looks great, you did a great job. Get the haters off you. They don’t count! All I see in this photo is an expression of love for your son.’
Others begged the mother to come and cook for their children as well.
“What the hell, we’re dying here of processed quick fixes. I can hardly cook and have no time. You’re doing great, but a little jealous!” said one woman.
