The lady I am baby sitting for just told me I am not feeding her child

I occasionally baby sit for this lady I used to work with. I really enjoy her son and he is the same age as mine. She came to pick him up when we were having lunch. She called and I told her they were having lunch but I could put his on a paper plate when she gets here. Well she got here and saw what I was feeding both kids and was cusing at me say it was not a lunch, it was a snack. She said a sandwhich with a cooked side or a tv dinner would be lunch. I was feeding both kids (almost 3 years old), canaloppe sp?, celery peanut butter logs, strawberries, baby carrots, cut up cucumber with ketchup for my son to dip and ranch for hers, a rolled piece of turkey, cheese, and crackers and if they ate all that I would get them more of whatever they want. I just want to know if you would be okay with your kids eating this at that age for lunch or do you agree with her? I am no longer going to watch her child because of the way she acted.

That's a fine lunch. A TV dinner is crap! And lunch doesn't always have to be hot. My kids loved finger foods like that at that age they have all the
food groups she needs to shove it.

Eta: tell her if she feels like you are not feeding her kid right she can send his lunch from now on.

 I would prefer that to a sandwich for lunch. My DD would love it.

Sounds like a very light lunch to me. Ds and DD usually get soup and a sandwich with a raw veggie to snack on.


But because she over reacted I wouldn't watch her kid either.

It sounds fine to me although I would probably do a PBJ sandwhich instead of celery.

I am not going to feed her kid anything I wouldn't feed my own (except the ranch because he hates if) but it also fills him up. Maybe your kids are older?
