    Of course!!
    Can't take yogurt in a tub, can't take yogurt in like a plastic wrapper (you know like gogurts) it HAS to be in a pouch (like the rafferties garden baby food style pouches with the plastic spout) so pretty much sugar loaded and preservatives - no doubt. So I guess home made yogurt is out. (Which kind of goes against their 'healthy' guidelines coz of the sugar content how ridiculous)

    No, seriously, the teacher came out and bundled all the parents together and told us with demonstration.

    My little man (prep) came home upset because he got told off for having a 100% apple juice popper in his lunchbox. . Apparently they are allowed water only (no milk either).

    I get the healthy eating, but there is taking things too far.

    Why the pouch? Aren't kids allowed to make a mess either? My DD wouldn't eat yoghurt like that ... she'd rather jump on the pouch to see how far she can spread the yoghurt. :s

    I'm sorry but I don't agree with this, teachers are there to teach, by all means teach and explain what is healthy and unhealthy but tell my child they can not have what I have given them for lunch? Thats not your job, I'm sorry to any teachers on here but its not and I'm sure most teachers would rather eat their own lunch and relax while kids are having lunch, teaching can be stressful enough with out risking an angry parent because if something like this

    i think that is rediculous!

    I would argue back with that, i believe everything OK in moderation and if they turned away home cooked food, i would wig out.

    At the moment, i am so pushed for time and over stressed...he does get one of those giant tiny teddy biscuits and a shop bought yoghurt...plus 2 bits of fruit, wholemeal roll with cheese and jam, a homemade muffin and another snack of some description.

    In our school...in Prep the kids would get bonus house points for having "brown bread" and for having 2 bits of fruit. But they were not "penalised". However, no mention was ever made of treats.

    Bingo. Tubs are too messy (coz, you know, kindy kids are so unco) and the gogurts are too hard for kids to open, so can be too messy, and the pouches are the best coz the kids can open them themselves and can suck the yogurt out. It's ridiculous isn't it??

    Associating food with punishment/reward is a sure fire path to life long food issues.

    I don't agree with this. Little kids don't pack their own lunches! I am a teacher and if I am on playground duty I will encourage children to eat certain foods ( eg "yum an apple!!!! How healthy and yum... Or that salad sandwich looks delis opus- wish I had one!") but would never tell a child their lunch is unhealthy... They could get a complex
