Mum blasted for packing eggs in four-year-old’s ‘unsuitable’ packed lunch
A mum was criticised for sending her daughter to school with boiled eggs in her lunchbox.
The parent also packed fresh fruit, a cereal bar, sweet treats and sandwiches for her four-year-old.
But some said the pre-schooler's packed lunch was unsuitable because it could potentially put others at risk.
As egg allergies are very common, they worried about the animal product causing a classmate to have a bad reaction.
One commenter said: “My daughter is allergic to eggs.”
And another commented: “One of my daughter’s friends from kindy was allergic to so much that even if someone touched a nut or egg and touched her she would come out in welts.”
The mum defended herself after the criticism.
She reassured that she had checked with the class before sending her daughter in with boiled eggs.
The Australian woman said: “They have implied I don’t care about allergies which isn’t the case.
“My daughter also loves almonds but I don’t send those of pranut butter sandwiches because of the allergy risk.
“There isn’t an egg issue in my daughter’s kinder. If there was a serious issue I would never put a child’s life at risk.”
