The offending lunch item? A lamington.
The lamington was sent home uneaten with a note from the school asking: “Please don’t send this item in your child’s lunch again.”
The mother responded to the lunchbox police, saying the lamington only contained 40 calories.
The backlash has been swift, with many parents commenting on social media that the rules have gotten out of control.
What happened to the rule that everything in moderation is fine. So long as the whole lunch isn’t lamingtons then it should be fine
