    What a great idea! How much chia would you use per egg? Would you add water to the chia first to make them gooey? Or just add them dry? Sorry to derail..

    Use 1 tblsp chia with 3 tblsp water for each egg. I often just chuck in the water and chia before it gets mixed up, but to be safe, you mix up the water and chia until it goes to gel before adding it to the other ingredients. @dollypops, you can also grind them up first if you don't want the seeds to show up in the finished product.

    Unless there is something in paperwork saying they can take away your childs food... send them what you like and feed them what you like. I see nothing wrong in what you sent for them. We as adults can't preach healthy when the majority of the population smoke and drinks. A few cornchips and a cookie isn't going to hurt them.

    Some people really have absolutely no idea. OP I would be really irritated.

    Just for the record its been mine and my friends experiences that daycares provide a variety of healthy food and kids are much more likely to eat it than they are at home, because all the other kids are. Although I gather your son might have allergies or something which would be hard on him.

    My auntie is a teacher and has seen kids whose parents send a 2ltr bottle of coke for lunch. So I think there needs to be policies in place but I think the policies mentioned here (eg not allowed a small handful of plain corn chips) are very over the top

    Thanks I do think that is the case with most kids, but my DS2 has allergies and SPD with some pretty major food aversions, so unfortunately I dont think it will help at all with him.

    sorry I didnt word my post very well and came back to edit it. What I meant was I thought most daycares provide food? I was wondering if people are getting mixed up with daycare and kindy?

    That does sound very hard with your sons conditions I can understand why you would want to avoid going anywhere that would be too restrictive

    I found a daycare that is very accommodating with DDs food issues. They don't provide food so I pack hers. And they've not commented on her food and are very aware of her issues. I think if you found a centre you could discuss it with them. .. and if they won't accommodate don't go there.

    Like you though. .. I'm dreading kindy/pre prep and school. ....

    We looked into it in the surrounding area and weren't happy with our options. Thankfully his teachers for pre-prep next year know him because they were also DS1's teachers, still cant help the nervousness though when all he has eaten today is cereal fruit bars, frozen peas (whilst still frozen!) And nutella sandwiches.
