    Wow I am so glad my son goes to a centre where all food is provided! What a nightmare. Confiscating food without providing an alternative is awful. How do they think they are frankly? They are not the parent.

    I do think many people need "help" with food choices for their kids particularly at school age as it does affect their behaviour and ability to learn. Healthy school lunches should be provided for this reason.

    I didn't go to school in Australia so is the norm here for kids to take their own lunch all the way up to high school?

    Just to clarify inter-state confusion, what age group are we talking about? First year full-time (5/6) or earlier part-time?

    Because they don't want to be responsible to ensure 30 kids put their milk back in the fridge so it stays at a safe temperature, they only have a bar sized fridge in the classroom for food that needs to be refrigerated and don't want 30 milk serves in there! I can see where they are coming from but they make no exception for any child (even mine with severe food aversions) because other parents kick up a stink if they see one child is allowed something.




    With the egg replacer, we were given a giant list of egg and other ingredients that are 'egg-like' that arent allowed. I'll hafto check if they Match up. *fingers crossed*

    And I know of married mums who are the same. All the single mums I know actually manage very well.

    I dont think Fearless Leader was trying to put single mums down it was just an example of one scenario. Its not a competition between single and partnered mums.

    If you get your Dr to write a letter stating he has to have it available to him they have to allow it.

    Really? That seems bizarre to me, I've seen many naturopaths and read much on nutrition and have never, ever heard a professional recommend eating refined sugar and salt. Unrefined salt like pink salt, celtic sea salt yes, eat liberally but refined salt in processed products is not much chop. And I don't think there is any evidence that refined, processed sugar is ever good for anybody in any amount.

    That said, (and I don't mean to be jumping on you, am honestly just shocked about that recommendation!) plain corn chips are a pretty harmless choice in my opinion, and I do think governmental control is nuts about this. Let *me* make the choices for *my* kids. Don't tar all parents with the same brush.

    Single mums are usually the standard example in any welfare type discussion - just doing my bit to stop the generalisation

    That is awesome to know, because if I had to limit eggs, dairy, nuts to my gluten-free kids, I'd be kinda stuffed providing them with options they will eat!
