An Australian mother received a scolding from her child’s kindergarten teacher for including a slice of cake in her daughter’s lunch bag.
It was apparently an act of negligent parenting as the mother of eight children was treated to a note in red, with a sad face on top, informing her that the slice of chocolate cake was flagged for violating the school’s healthy foods policy, according to GoodHousekeeping.com.
“Your child has chocolate slice from the Red Food category today. Please choose healthier options for Kindy,” read the note. (Kindy refers to kindergarten.)

The mother’s treat for her 3-year-old fell under the school’s “Red Food Category,” which includes foods “that may contain excess energy (kilojoules), saturated fat, added sugar and/or salt,” according to Good Housekeeping. Sodas and deep-fried foods will also earn a parent a shaming note from their childrens’ schools Down Under.
Melinda Tankard Reist, a friend of the mom’s, posted a photo of the note on Facebook along with an explanation.
“My friend (mother of 8 healthy children, what follows relating to no. 7) received this today from her 3 year old’s kindy,” Reist wrote. “I told her to put in two slices tomorrow and tell them to get lost.”
The post sparked more hundreds of shares and more than 800 comments.
“I’m quite sure the mother knows it has sugar ….the mother is NOT in kindergarten …..the teacher is chastising the parent here ! Plus makes the child feel bad …shame on that teacher,” wrote Angela Taylor, in the comments.
“Tell the teacher to take a hike! It is none of their business!! And the bit about sugar rush, isn’t that’s what recess and all the exercise is about,” asked Pat Walker.
Robert Anderson simply asked, “Who wouldn’t like a piece of chocolate cake in their lunch from time to time?”
In a statement to The Advertiser, the Education Department of the South Australian school said it will be reviewing the kindergarten’s policy.

“In response to some aspects of community feedback, the kindergarten director, in conjunction with the Governing Council which agreed to the process, is examining possible ways to refine communication with parents and carers,” the department’s executive director of Early Years and Child Development, Ann-Marie Hayes said. “Placing notes in lunch boxes is not a standard practice.”
