I sent dd with corn chips. About 10 or less plain as day, no flavouring corn chips. I get pulled up on it that day staying she was bo allowed to eat it as the salt content is too high. That same day she had a couple home baked cookies which had a smidgen of choc sprinkles on top. And I mean literally a pinch that I sprinkled on each cookie before baking. She also was not allowed to eat them due to the sprinkles.
Now I actually question whether they can really stop your child from having it.? If it's got peanuts then yeh I understand that as that can put other children at risk. But other stuff...? Really? Especially if it is not replaced by anything?
Also...While I'm at it....cocoa. if I bake with cocoa how is that bad? They say children are not allowed to consume chocolate. But it's cocoa powder.

Can preschool stop your child eating something they see as unhealthy?

Unless they're going to provide an alternative, they shouldn't be allowed to stop your children from eating their own food IMO

I think the school must be trying to tell you something.
Corn chips are not a very nutritious or appropriate food for a preschool aged child. They really are just junk.
As for the biscuits, well, they will eventually cause tooth decay and aren't very nutritious either.... As Cookie Monster says, they are a 'sometimes' food.
A better choice might be dried or fresh fruit, a banana, a ham sandwich, or some cheese and crackers.
In the interests of your childs health, I'd consider watching Jamie Oliver's documentaries on childhood nutrition and serving suggestions, he's awesome.

I don't think they should be able to stop your child eating what you send them with. Do they expect the child to go hungry?

Yeah, our preschool dont allow even vege chips. Nothing chocolate, no
Chop chips, no chocolate muffins, they say no to processed packeted foods with high sugar,

If you are feeding your child chips at school, it might as well be going hungry, there is no nutritional value in this type of 'food'.

I would be very annoyed if my child came home hungry because school had stopped them eating their lunch. Fair enough speak to the parents and ensure it doesn't happen again but they should let them eat it or offer a replacement.

I think if you were sending those kinds of food everyday I can understand but as a treat no
Our kindergarten was strict but allowed treats here and there
