4yo ds has to take a snack to kindergarten every day - yesterday I gave him a little tupperware pot with apple slices in it. When I looked in his rucksack, it was still full, so I said "Oh, you didn't eat your apple?" He looked at me and said "I didn't eat the bread, I didn't like it".

Looked in his rucksack and there was another tupperware pot in there with a bit of sandwich - at least a week old and COVERED in mould. I said "You didn't eat any did you?" and he said "I had one bite and it was yucky so I didn't eat any more"

That would have been about 24 hours ago... will he get sick?! I feel terrible!

if he was going to be sick he would ahve by now probably not enough eaten to warrant any sickness it was an accident dont beat yourself up over it

I have discovered mould on the crusts of sandwiches my children have brought home from school - they had obviously eaten the rest without noticing!

I also once accidentally sent my ds butter cream icing and marmite sandwiches for lunch.

They survived, so will your ds. Don't worry about it!

oh dear! Poor DS but most of all, poor you! I think your DS will be fine - as bubblagirl said, he would be sick by now I think.

argh, seeker - I never knew marmite could be made even worse! That is classic

I'm hoping he spat out what he did eat, poor boy! Thanks for your answers, fingers crossed he didn't eat enough to get ill.

It was the subject of quite a long thread at the time about whether I should take in fresh sandwiches for him. Because he is a NSB I didn't and he asked whether I was using different bread, because "My sandwiches were interesting"!

Seeker - love the sound of marmite and buttercream, lol!

Thinking about it, I think that bread was probably more like 2 weeks old... it had serious mould on it, not just a couple of spots. Poor child.

I used to take my lunch in a big plastic margarine tub; no branded character-laden goods for us - great - until I opened it one day to find 1/2 pound of margarine for my lunch.

And i'd been quite excited by how heavy it felt that day

My mum also once gave me a raw potato that she thought was a pear hmm

LOL at the raw chili and the butter for lunch!

I sent ds1 to his childminder with nothing to eat all day but rancid breast milk.

We immediately bought a new freezer grin
