Let it go or say something? They didn't feed him lunch *SMALL UPDATE* *another update, talked to the director*
Small update today and will update after I talk to the teacher tomorrow (he goes two days a week)
I took some of your advice and I'm making his lunch as kid friendly as possible, he can open the zip top baggies so I'm putting everything I can in those.
Chicken nuggets are grilled not fried and they are home made, those are going in a zip top bag
The applesauce is in a pouch he can suck out though the teacher can open that because she did on Tuesday. The applesauce contains nothing but applesauce and apple juice. There is nothing wrong with it and it's healthy. The brand is natures child, feel free to look it up.
I am also packing steamed broccoli though I'm not sure how to pack it yet. I don't want to put it in a bag so I'll try a small disposable container and hope the teacher will open it for him.
He's also getting some graham crackers that I will put in a bag as his treat and for his morning snack I'm packing goldfish, also in a bag
To fix the water problem I will pack his push top water bottle that doesn't leak but he can open it and I will be packing another 100% apple juice box.
He doesn't get dairy at school because he's allergic to milk and things like cheese and yogurt. I make sure he gets calcium from soy milk the broccoli and fortified orange juice plus he also gets vitamins every day.
I hope this appeases all the woman who had a problem with what I packed, though I know even this won't make them happy.
So the director said they asked him what he wanted and opened just the food he wanted. The 4 chicken nuggets and the applesauce and the graham crackers were gone from his lunch box and the brocolli looks like it was untouched. I was polite but said they need to just set everything out for him that if they ask what he wants he's not going to eat right. She also said I gave him too much food last time. A small thermos of soup and applesauce is not to much for him! He eats that and then some for me.
I think I will start just packing his main course and fruit and veggie and forget the treat because I want him to eat as healthy as possible. I think she expects me to pack a sandwich and chips and I won't be doing that.
