    I realize there's two more pages to read but...

    With the rise of allergies I imagine it is safer for childcare centers to provide the food and therefore be able to control the situation and ensure a toddler doesn't come into contact with something that may make them sick.

    😂They may actually be called something different on their label but as a child I only ever heard both referred to as 'sprinkles' and never heard the term 100s and 1000s until moving to Melbourne.

    I don't agree with sweets forming part of a menu at child care. Call me a wowser but I honestly don't. I don't care if it's once a month or once a week. It's a treat and shouldn't be expected.

    I also see that as the fun part of my job as mum. I have to drag kicking and screaming toddlers around all day. I get to be the one who bribes them with fairy bread or whatever I choose. I also don't have a problem with teachers giving my kids an occasional lolly pop or iceblock if they've worked really hard on something.

    The way I see it - you have to be the ball breaker then you get to be the hero too.

    And my kids would live on fruit loops if I let them. In fact there was a brief period where I reckon DD2 might have.
    I actually thought of this earlier, do I really want to loose the opportunity to give it to him for whatever reason and let childcare steal it from me?!

    I was about to tag you as I have a feeling this thread was something juicy. Don't want you missing out again. But you beat me!

    With option C - you can then either whinge about it online, which isn't going to change the menu or you can arrange a meeting with the director and express your concerns about the menu.

    So then the menu might change or it might not. Which then leaves you to decide as to what's more important - the kid being in childcare and getting crap food or the kid not being in childcare and getting healthy food.
    You actually didn't answer their questions in the comments you quoted. Do you have kids and if so what ages? I'm really curious to know.

    Ah, this thread...

    Is anyone else imagining a food fight with people throwing handfuls of 100s and 1000s at each other?
