    Life has become very strange when as parents we get upset about fairy bread. I think we need to collectively calm down a bit.

    I think with the amount of obesity in this country there has been far too much calm and not enough education to make people aware of what children are eating and how it can lead to obesity and type 2 diabetes.

    I can't see how giving fairy bread is modelling good food choices to children, I just can't!

    People saying fairy bread isn't a big deal need to do some research on the effects of food colouring on children- sorry to be blunt, but food colouring should be band in children imo! It's awful and the effects on little kids bodies is ridiculous- why else do you think it's afternoon tea not morning tea? Cause they play outside and go home in the afternoon!

    If it were a one off or occasional thing and not impacting on alergies or hypersensitivities I'd say 'get a life people'

    Seriously are we a nanny state or what. Maybe we should have the pantry police go thru everyones cupboards. Check every piece of chocolate a parent eats. Vet the menu of every party where a child might be.

    Surely there must be some more serious things to worry about.

    If it was a daily thing then yes some parents may have cocerns and request their child have a celery stick or carrot instead.

    Vent over

    I would be ok with it for sometimes, but not every day. Have you asked if it's a regular thing? Have you looked at their menu?

    I'd be pi$$ed. My 2.5 yo DD has never had fairy bread so daycare had better not be giving her any!

    These responses just prove my point
    Really...being "mortified" by fairy bread once a week? Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't fairy bread just bread, a bit of margarine, and some microscopic bits of coloured sugar?

    I think we have derailed into "Bub Hub high moral ground"-land.

    And yes, we touched on nutrition in my Medical Degree

    Those microscopic bits of coloured sugar make my life a living hell. My 4yo cannot handle artificial colours.

    And I'm sure the child-care centre knows that, and your child is given something else. I'm not talking about anecdotal cases. Most children can handle 100s and 1000s.

    I think christmas is crap and based on a pack of lies. It has the highest rate of homicide and suicide according to some 'experts'

    Unlike some religious groups I dont try and stop everyone else from celebrating because od my views

    If your child has an issue the centre should know. Does not mean your rules should apply to all children

    For thousands of years most parents (and family groups) were responsible for caring for their own children. Didnot have these issues like we do today. Maybe grandma sloilt the kids etc

    Modern life .... what a blessing - not
