My daughter goes to a very nice & small class size PreSchool. The school a few years back as part of their program started a healthy eating program & part of that healthy eating program they stress to parents to send healthy snacks for snack time, at the beginning of the year they send a list home with NO JOKE 200 suggestions of healthy snacks.
Their is a child in my daughters class that consistently has an "unhealthy snack" everyday, things like fruit by the foot, oreos, chip ahoy cookies, sour patch kids, hershey candy bar (the big size), suckers & the list goes on.
Well I guess the teacher had a private conversation with the mom the other day after class & asked her to please try to bring healthier snacks & gave her a copy of the list. I found this out because the mom was complaining about how it's non of the teachers business what her child brings in so long as it's nut free.
DO you agree? Is it the teachers place to try to enforce healthy snack? Do you think she stepped out of line by privately talking to the mom?
