To think this might be the worst packed lunch ever?
198

I told DS he had pasta salad for lunch. This evening he asked why we’d given him “funny mashed potato” instead.

Turns out the pasta salad was still in the fridge and he’d been eating a tub full of fat I’d saved for the birds ShockBlush

Has anyone sent their child to school with anything worse or our we officially the worst parents on Mumsnet?

I'm surprised you didn't get a confused call from the school receptionist!! Grin

You're not bad parents at all, it was a mistake. Now, had you intentionally sent him to school with fat ball mix, that would be a different story Confused

Hahahaha! Oh dear, bless you and your wee boy! 😂

My brother once opened his lunchbox at school to find therein a banana that was past its best covered in biscuit crumbs.

There was no excuse for this other than my mum was a very very busy woman, and a bit scatty. Brother was only very little at the time so a banana and a few biscuits might have (just about) been an adequate lunch as a one-off. But the biscuits didn’t survive the journey being swung about by a 5 year-old, so a crumb-coated banana was lunch that day.

Just to add: I believe the school kitchen found him a sandwich to eat.

Oh god yes the fat balls thread, how could I forget! Keeping bird food in the fridge is clearly hazardous!

This makes me feel better!

DS does need fattening up to be fair, not sure this was the way to go about it.

I'm impressed he ate it!
I got home today to find out my 12 Yr old hadn't picked up his lunch so he got nothing from home! Thankfully he always has some credit on his school account, so he went to the canteen.

My mum used to love saved fat, she'd dip bread in it, spread it on toast etc 😂 Maybe DS didn't mind it OP?

I had a bit of a rep for sending my kids to school with sandwiches made from mouldy bread.

In my defence, I did try to pick all the bits of mould off before I made the sandwiches. Obviously missed a few. Happened more than once Blush

A friend's mum used to batch-assemble peanut butter sandwiches and freeze them, then put them in my friend's lunch.

DH argues that dripping on toast is a delicacy. It’s not something that’s tempted me!

Omg!!!! That is hilarious 😂 oh wow, be prepared for an upset tummy!

When I first clicked on the thread I thought I would be able to beat whatever it was you were going to say….oh how wrong was I?!

DH once sent DD to school with a mince meat sandwich…the mince meat you make Christmas mince pies with. He has also added some of the mince meat to cream crackers.

Yours is worse!

What happened ? Did he eat it? Did he get a school dinner ?

I’ve not checked to see how much he’s eaten yet - he’s a fussy eater who often comes home with one bite taken from a sandwich, so I don’t think he saw anything particularly unusual about the whole incident. Just another lunch he wasn’t keen on!
