To not let my son eat there again?

My son goes to a private tutor a few times a week due to a long list of special needs.

Today at his tutor he made a pizza, this was so he could explore different textures, colours and try new food

The tutor came out with a pizza slice during ' sandwich time' ( would normally have a sandwich) and placed a slice of pizza and apple slices in front of him.. Ds was very unsure of the meal as it wasn't his normal food and sat looking at it for a few minutes when suddenly 3 ants crawled over his plate and over his food!

The tutor acted shocked and quickly moved the plate away , later on i heard her say to a new tutor in the building that they always has an ant problem in spring / summer and finds doesn't want to put anything down because there's always children in the building and when she thinks they have ' disappeared' she then finds them crawling over the sides or in the cupboards ! ( we go to a specialist building where she teachers him.. she doesn't come to us)

AIBU to not want him to eat the food there? Depending on the day he would have breakfast / snack/ lunch/ sandwich time.

It's hard as I feel her pain. I have an ant problem at this time of year every year too and however much ant powder I put down I still find the little buggers. I tend to squish them when I see them but I wouldn't not eat a meal because one or two were on my plate.

I genuinely don't think a few ants would stop me eating food. I'd pick them off, of course. But they don't disgust me and I don't feel they are dirty.

Is it just me?

I was always told that 🐜 are very clean.

I would still probably eat the food (minus the ants)

We get ants every year around this sort of time. Meh. They're ants.

I'd much prefer a few ants than trying to stop a bunch of kids going anywhere near various piles of ant powder.

Few ants wouldn't bother me personally.
