    Oh my god that makes me so angry - isnt this just setting our children up for having a bad relationship with food? I see a mutritionist for my oldest son as he does not eat anywhere near what he should (he is almost 4 but my 20 month old out-eats him!) And she said the worst thing we can do is label foods good or bad!

    I think that's fine as long as that teacher gives me a list of what she has eaten that day in front of the class that we can all look at and tear apart.

    I would be speaking to the teacher voicing your concerns over this system and if she insists on continuing the reigime asking them to compile a handout of appropriate and non appropriate foods so parents know in advance and their children aren't unnecessarily punished!
    DS is 11, is 144cm tall and wears size 10~11 clothes, dances 3 times a week for 1.5 hours and walks or rides to school every day - so I thought he was just about right? He's growing ATM - he has grown 4 cm in the last three weeks as he was only 140cm at the end of last term and I had to ring my MIL to NOT take up his winter school pants after all. Does 41kg seem too big/heavy?

    I am seeing the teacher this week and am on school council so will be bringing it up there

    I've seen him, he is definitely not overweight.


    The whole allowed foods and disallowed foods frustrate me no end. DD is vegan which means we already have a limited scope, she is also very fussy and won't eat vegies raw or in large pieces, which means no chance of her taking them to school. Plus she takes forever to eat things, so she is simply down to one solitary sandwich at school, because we are sick of wasting food.

Dried fruit because it has most of its water absorbed provides a great source of fibre.

    My MIL and SIL are nutritionists/naturopaths and are both against dried fruit as a staple food ( fresh is always best!)
    Dried fruit is still obviously a better choice than sweets/junk food because it still has lots if vitamins/minerals/iron but because dehydrating it concentrates it's calories the sugar becomes a problem, (diabetes is becoming a huge problem ) especially as we would normally eat 1 apricot when dried its easy to eat a handful of them, commercial ones being worse as they can have trans fats, added sugar , nitrates and sulphates ( dried fruit still has some fibre but most of the fibre is in the apple skin so I was referring to pp who peels the apple before drying it!)

    Mmm, I don't know. I definitely disagree with a child being punished or shamed for his food but I do think it is a good idea to not allow packaged goods/juice etc. in schools.

    Some schools must be ignoring this directive, I know a prep who gets a chicken nugget lunch order and comes home to them for dinner. Why are they selling nuggets?

    Her teacher keeps some healthier bits and pieces to share with her.

    Imagine a whole school with children eating nothing but fruit, cut up vegies, grains, wholemeal salad sandwiches and water every single day. Would be awesome!
