This is a joke - right?

YABU to think that bread, Quavers, chocolate 'yoghurt' and cake are a balanced meal.

The other child's safety is more important than your child's desire to eat cake.

Yabu

Arf at chocolate yoghurt

i assume this is a wind up based on teh lunchbox contents.

but... i raised my eyebrows at a recent letter i received from ds2's preschool saying that as a child at the group has a dairy allergy, no family members of pre school kids should have any milk products for an hour before drop off or pick up, which seems a bit of an over-reaction...

You'll just have to learn how to make eggless cake. I'm sure there are egg substitutes available that vegans use. Yabu.

This sounds like a wind up, but just in case...

I understand from someone here that the allergy experts DON'T want allergens (nuts, eggs etc) banned for schools when there is someone there with an allergy, perhaps because it encourages complacency and avoids proper checking.

I'm not surprised he's constipated with no fruit.

VivaLeBeaver Mon 27-Jun-11 11:06:59

I love chocolate yoghurt.

OTheHugeManatee Mon 27-Jun-11 11:07:03

the doctor said chocolate was good for constipation so he needs his Smarties after breakfast

grin

mrsravelstein....how the hell do they think they can police that??

that would make me angry actually

Ormirian Mon 27-Jun-11 11:07:41

Oh come on! This has to be a wind-up?

ilovemydogandMrObama Mon 27-Jun-11 11:08:04

Well, DS (3) has a dairy and soya allergy and feel that the best way for him to cope would not be to ban it, but rather for him to be aware of his allergy.

When you start banning foods it can also create a false sense of security.

Bowel issues would not warrant this kind of diet under any circumstances...it's a load of bollocks that he 'needs' chocolate...there are plenty of healthier options to get his bowels moving.

YABU to expect that your child should be able to eat what he wants when another child is faced with a potential life threatening allergy. Your child will survive without cake.
