    Our cc have fairy bread instead of cake for birthdays. Only the room with a birthday child get it. I have no dramas with it and I have children who don't react well to additives - I do have problems with custard as s staple of the diet though.

    Never at my centre. Parents do bring snacks to our graduation to share and I've seen fairy bread but that's a one off and parents provide it.

    Once in a blue moon. Fine. No worries.
    My DD has just started a new centre. The menu is fruit for morning tea. Hot lunch etc. Afternoon tea can be fruit or myesli slice or muffins etc.
    If fairy bread turned up I wouldn't be 'mortified '.
    That's a pretty strong word.
    As long as the majority of the food as nutritional value then I think it's all okay.

    Mine would never have fairy bread, maybe for a kids birthday or something? Though I've never seen it.

    My kid would go crazy on it so they'd prob have a hard time looking after him after he ate that!

    Fairy bread, which is usually made with white bread and margarine has no nutritional value, ok for some fun at a party but I wouldn't want my child to have it often.

    At mine They do fruit, yoghurt, cheese and crackers, piklets with fruit, vegies and dip. As far as I know the kids don't seem too unhappy..

    Someone correct me but isn't fairy bread a party food? As in its someone's birthday lets celebrate? Children in general have small tummies and will stop eating when they are full. That's why what goes into them needs be nutrious. Fairy bread is not and is ultimately replacing something else that could be.

    I hardly think any day care etc would be giving fairy bread as a staple food.

    Greater issue should be taken with centres going against specific parent requests.

    A parent says no sugar then no sugar

    A parent says no day nap then no day nap etc

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

    And yes, we touched on nutrition in my Medical Degree

    Yes, I consider it a party food.

    I would ask if one of the children had a birthday and this was the celebration food, or whether this is on their regular snack rotation?

    Considering your concerns about what they are serving, I think you should request to have a good look at their regular menu to decide whether this centre is suitable for your child.

    I personally wouldn't find this concerning if it was an occasional thing. Then again my DS simply wouldn't eat it so I don't have to consider it.

    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
    Please point out where I said that I expect my rules to apply to everyone else.

    Problem with this thing on the job. Very easy to give someone the wrong idea.

    No i did not take your comment as one that was being pushed on everyone.

    Generally the tone of the tread in general has an 'no fairy bread' bent. I should be more careful how i quote and be more specific.

    Not in refference to the above quote 😉

    The OP says 'afternoon tea'.

    That IMHO hardly constitutes major diet and still an unknown as to whether it was a one off, once a week or speial occasion.
