    As the others have said definitely speak to the teacher.

    Unfortunately it's actually quite common in primary school for food to go missing, we have a case nearly every year. The amount of kids that are given almost nothing, in some cases I've seen firsthand, a cupcake to last the day, these poor kids feel they have no choice. Usually the teachers are aware of which students to watch and at DD's school there are actually a few kids who are provided with meals most days.

    It's actually very upsetting that their are kids out there as young as 4-5 years old resorting to theft just to put food in their poor little tummies.

    It's not common at my school for lunches to go missing, but loads of kids come with nothing.

    We have a free breakfast club, free apples at recess and free sandwiches for lunch.

    That's so sad that your school has to do that, but great that they are trying to help.

    OP, I'd have a quiet word to the teacher.

    I spoke to the teacher today and she's had a chat with the class about the importance of not sharing food or taking other kids foods (or something along those lines according to DS).

    He's been hiding the meusli bar in his bag and that's been working so fingers crossed no more.

    I do feel sorry if its a child that's hungry but the teacher seemed to think everyone had quite adequate lunches from what she's seen so I hope she's right.
