Why are some opposed to food rationing?

A student brings lunch from home every day. Due to students allergies he is only allowed to eat what mothers sends in. The teacher believes that the students needs "XL portions". Mother doesn't agree and will keep sending the same amount of food she has sent until now.

  • She says that the student is asking for more food.

    Maybe he's still hungry. I don't think it would hurt to send a growing buy just a little extra food. I'm not saying send twice as much, but if he's asking for more, he probably needs more. Or at least send foods that are a little higher in protein to help him feel fuller longer.

  • Ask the teacher why she thinks they need "XL portions".

  • Hello!! Maybe the child is hungrier during the day then in the morning & evening like my DS. That is when they are the most active. Unless the child is obese, what is the point?

  • Shay is right. Who is the teacher to dictate what the child will eat.

    About the child: the child is not obese, why would he be. Mother takes care of the nutrition and portions. op
